Were You Subjected to Police Brutality, False Arrest or False Imprisonment in Michigan?

- Was excessive force used — that is, more force than was necessary?
- Did police continue to exert force even after they had restrained you?
- Did police take you into custody without an arrest warrant or without probable cause?
- Were police assumptions leading to your arrest unreasonable?
- Did police lack legal justification for taking you into custody?
