Facts: KQ was arrested for a breach of bail and driving with a cancelled licence. That is a fine-only offence. KQ had previously provided police with a sheet indicating that his bail had been varied.

Police arrested KQ anyway. KQ spent a night in custody. The breach of bail was dismissed the next day in court.

Result: KQ lodged a claim for False Imprisonment and Assault in the District Court. The matter settled.
