A: Sounds scarily and unfortunately typical. Cops are called for one thing and then it all rolls downhill as folks keep TALKING to them.

With a mess like that you need to be extra careful as aggressive prosecutors will set up the dynamic to have everyone at their mercy, and a LOCAL LAWYER will be able to navigate you out.

You DO NOT want folks trying to DIY this, as the state can then start threatening everyone with obstruction and false info and all kinds of other stuff.
