Can I sue for a police officer for wrongful arrest?
Yes, a police officer may be sued individually for an arrest made without probable cause, so long as in doing so he or she violated a clearly established constitutional right, as he or she otherwise may be able to successfully claim qualified immunity. Often, the question will come down to the egregiousness of the arrest made without probable cause to believe that a crime was committed.
