  1. I did have proper documentation prior to getting my husbands car out of storage from the base. I had the registration and insurance card stating my registration was valid until 1-18-2013 and insurance good until 3-15-2013. Thank you!
  2. On my way to Paris Island SC for Fort Benning, GA, I was stopped in Reynolds GA for window tint violation. The trooper was going to write me a citation until he discovered my insurance was bad and my registration suspended. It was my husbands car that was taken out of storage a week prior due to his deployment and upon military (army) regulations you cannot drive the car on the base without proof of registration or insurance. I called the insurance company (****) who verified full coverage and no lapse in coverage! I then called the tag place and they verified that the reason the registration was suspended was because of insurance but now that insurance was showing the car was back active. (it was an obvious system error) They said that stuff happens all the time to military families because we move around so much and explained that to the officer. The officer proceeded to get the car towed because the tint was in violation of the law and that his system was not showing that the suspension had been lifted. They put my 3 children (10,6,3) in the back of one police car and me in another, took us to the police station where I was finger printed and they took a picture of me. I was then told i needed to pay 1600 bond, FOR WHAT? To bail out? What am I being arrested for, window tint violation and at the time that I stopped you your registration was suspended. I thought i was like a practical joke but was told it was a class c misdemeanor for window tints. They took me and the kids to the trailer, I mean jail that was in a trailer. I was never told I was under arrest, I was never told what I was arrested for. I was never hand cuffed or read any rights. My kids were hanging out with me the whole time crying and tramatized because we have never been to jail. Im not from GA, just stationed here with my husband, my husband is deployed and pissed because he cannot do anything to help. Was there anything wrong in how they proceeded to take care of the issue??? Can you be arrested for window tints? Did they have a right to take minor children to the jail? In order for it to be an arrest dont i need to be detained and read my rights and informed of what I am being charged for?? HELPPP..
