Think twice because:
If the police arrive and decide that the “callee” rather than the “caller” has the more reasonable point of view, or has done nothing illegal, the caller looks foolish and has unwittingly scored a victory for his opponent. Further, if you wrongfully embarrass someone or misspeak about them, you may give him a lawsuit against you.
Regardless of the outcome, whenever you call the police on someone you have made an enemy for life – of him, his family, his friends and your other neighbors who may take his side. Your relationship with the neighborhood will never be the same.
Self examine. If your expectation of the police is that they will sweep down and right your personal wrong, you may be disappointed. First, the most likely outcome, if the police officer agrees with you, is a ticket for your neighbor and a future court date for both of you. Second, if you show that disappointment by becoming upset or confrontative with the officer because she has not lived up to your standards. you could end up the one in trouble.
Self examine once more. Reconsider calling if all you are trying to do is beat the other person to the punch because you think they are going to call.
Finally, don’t think twice, think five times before calling if you have been drinking alcohol or you are not entirely clear and cogent. If you still call, once the police arrive, listen much more than you speak.
Best of all, if you can do so comfortably, think twice, be patient and call your lawyer in the morning. She can best advise you as to whether your situation is criminal, civil or mental.
