My fiance was driving a vehicle I recently purchased the car did not have insurance nor does he have a driver's license.
The issue at hand is the police did not ask him about the incident instead they treated him like a criminal and arrested him and even though I arrived at the accident they still impounded my vehicle.
This is causing a financial hardship on my family as I don't have the money to get the car put of impound nor pay the cost to have it towed from the impound all the way to my home.
Can I sue the police department for racially profiling and financial hardship.
Honestly I have seen people get pulled over all of the time for no license or insurance yet because they searched the car and didn't find drugs I felt like they needed to try to find something to pin him with because they thought they were going to hit it big.
Can someone help me please
They may likely would have arrested any driver who had no license and insurance. Confirm with local counsel.
I am sorry to read of your awful experience. However, there likely is not a actionable offense here. Not having a license or auto insurance are difficult hurdles to overcome.

Sorry for what you are going through. There are definitely cases in which the immunity issue can be overcome, but most likely, your financial damages are not enough to compensate an attorney for the extreme effort this type of case would take.
