It is not illegal if your neighbor thought you committed a crime involving his property. If there is a warrant then you are going to need to call the Sheriff's department and see if they want you to turn yourself in. Because of COVID-19 , people with warrants are being booked then released...Read more »
You need to pose this to a Tennessee attorney, but your post remains open for four weeks. Contact a Tennessee environmental attorney (there's a section here on that). You're talking about an environmental law matter more so than a constitutional law matter. Good luck
I filled for a concealed carry permit through the state of TN. After my background check was conducted they found that I was convicted of criminal damages to property- misdemeanor when I was 17, this was 14 years ago. The state has now asked for certified court documents on the case. However the... Read more »
You will have to provide the State the requested documents. The Department of Safety issues the HCP, and if they do not want to, they don't. If denied, you can file a declaratory action in General Sessions Court very soon after the denial. Denial of a HCP does not mean you necessarily...Read more »
And then this person said that this was actually a 16 year old and he is going to press charges. If this ended up with him asking for money. I realize that this would most likely be a scam but if it was real, can I actually be arrested amd prosecuted for this? This is deeply troubling.

Felony charges might occur at Grand Jury. If there is a Probate, Administrator should ask Court for return of firearm. But it is probably not worth the trouble, and may again result in more charges. Hire a competent attorney, but you being in possession of drugs and firearm are themselves...Read more »

It may well have been a legal stop, but a motion to suppress should be plead anyway. The LEO will claim he had knowledge of a contraband transaction, and apparently he was correct. The Defendant needs a competent attorney.
There is sometimes a County Ordinance that allows the City Cops to exercise jurisdiction in the County. In this case though the Officer will claim he observed your Rule of the Road Violation in the City then followed you. What Court is it in? But be respectful and maybe the Judge will Divert...Read more »
In Tennessee we have "Handgun Carry Permits", not concealed carry permits. But yes, you can carry your weapon loaded with ammunition, including in the chamber, as long as you have a Handgun Carry Permit. Possession of the weapon can be open or concealed. The possible issue has to do...Read more »
You probably got arrested/cited for Going Armed, which is a Class A Misdemeanor. That is a 11 mo/29 days possible Sentence. If LEO's took your weapons, then they may have had legal justification or they may not have. Since there is a Criminal Charge you must be careful how you demand and...Read more »
Your demand letter in conjunction with a criminal complaint could possibly be construed as extortion. If you still wish to pursue, then call the Sheriff, then Police, then District Attorney General. Finally you have a statutory right to file an affidavit in support of being heard before the next...Read more »
My husband and I checked in on 8/30/2018. We have been here continuously, since. I have receipts to prove this. With that TCA, does the police not have to enforce the law as stated, even though it is civil? This hotel also turned our power off, and I know this is illegal as well, so I flagged a... Read more »
You are incorrect. The Police enforce criminal law violations. It is up to the citizen or the civil authorities to enforce common law, statutes and equitable principles in the Courts of our State. You may have a cause of action to sue for damages or to enjoin what you believe are illegal...Read more »
The Bank will take subject to your status as a renter. But it is very easy to declare you in default and file a Detainer Warrant on you. You get served then go to Court. If not out after 10 days , the Bank will get a Writ of Possession issued and executed by the Sheriff. The Bank is the owner...Read more »
