I got a call from an investigator from Arlington Texas informing me that a couple has accused me of hitting their car in in December in their apartment complex parking lot.
The husband stepped out of the car to stop the car from driving away. Apparently the person drove forward and he had to step out of the way. They followed that car and stopped at a kroger. They lost the car but later found it in the kroger parking lot.
They took photos of the car and the plate and said it was me. I work in that Kroger that’s 30 min away from where I live due to an emergency. I don’t know anyone that lives in that city that I’d visit. I’ve never been to any apartment complexes there and definitely don’t remember having the confrontation with a guy in front of the car. My car has a Florida plate on it and they were sure it was me because the plate stood out a lot as they followed.
The officer called again today and said there was a male passenger in the car that hit them. I never had any male passengers because when I go to that city, it’s only because I have to work there. The officer took my insurance info and said if the investigation swings their way they’d get my insurance info.
I also sent her photos of my car all the way around like she asked so she can match it with the description of the accusers. The bad thing is that I already had scratches on that car before it was given to me by my mom. It does not look good for me.
Should I get a lawyer? I tried to contact a lawyer but none of them called me back :(. The officer said something about she could have a warrant for my arrest when I tried to explain to her that it might be insurance fraud since they only have photos of my scratched up car which is frequently parked in that kroger because... well I work there and that none of the other events matched what I have.
