I have enjoy this conversation fom time to time so when did you make your first arrest, what was the nature of the offense, and what gun were you carrying when you made the arrest and where were you?

My first arrest occurred in December 1998 in Barrow, Alaska. The offense was an Assault in the Fourth Degree DV. I was carrying one of my Glock Model-22 and it was damn cold outside.

My first was back in April of 1996 while working for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee. I was carrying my S&W 4506. The charges were 1) Hit and Run; 2) DUI; and 3) Possession of Marijuana.

While working a Hit and Run crash, the offender actually drove back past the scene. I ran her down, finally got her to stop, and it was all down hill for her from there. Still remember her name...

How can you guys remember your first arrest? Mine was in July of 2005 in a suburb of Houston, but I can't remember what it was or any details around it. My FTO was a blur that involved hundreds of calls. I only remember the big events. I know I was carrying a glock 17 because a 9mm glock was mandatory for new officers.

One of my first arrests that I can remember invovled a pursuit following some Hondurans that were just involved in a home invasion gone bad that ended in shooting. They crashed out in a cul-de-sac near a large city park in the next city over. I was able to chase one through the pitch black park grounds with two other officers. It was like a pack of lions closing in on a gazelle - pretty fun! The guys had a couple pounds of weed in their vehicle, a pimped out Beretta 92, a revolver, and an SKS. We later received a service ribbon for it.

A 15 year old kid on Ft. Bragg for B&E in 1997. I carried an Army issued Beretta M9 with no bullet in the chamber because thats what they make MP's do. Maybe they can carry one in the chamber now god I hope so, but we couldn't back then.

I remember the first hand full just because I was new to it and it was all very exciting. After the excitement went away, so did remembering it all.

One rarely arrests in MP because among other things, to do so, releases a person from duty. At the very least, I can't recall a situation where we actually placed someone under arrest.

Closest? Late 80's, one Marine had put a knife, non fatally, into another Marine on the NE coast of CONUS. He was taken down and restrained with HtH (no guns) before our cuffs. The Marine CO took charge of him and had him immediately transferred to the brig at Quantico.

For the military guys - no such thing as double jeopardy when you're active, right? I.E. you step on your dick in civilian life, you can be fisted by the military too - yes?

In a matter of speaking, yes..........but then again, what you just described occurs in civilian life as well. Ie, you are talking about different juristictions.

Let's say civilian Jack kills FBI agent Jill in hometown, state of home, USA. The prosecutor of hometown can try Jack under the statutes of the state of home. Okay, say Jack gets 50 years. If there is a Federal statute for killing an employee of the Federal gov't, then the Federal prosecutor can also take Jack to trial for the same act.......but it is a different offense because it is under a different juristiction.......and no double jeopardy results.

A case I had in the Navy. A servicemember was writing bad checks. The county attorney went after them. Now, the Navy, at least then, cannot force one to pay their bills. What they can do, however, is come after someone if their actions are showing a discredit on the Navy. Which is what we did when we went after them with the UCMJ and threw them into a Correctional Custody Unit (CCU) for three weeks. CCU's are a more intense bootcamp experience to try to recover sailors.

The textbook double whammy for military is getting tossed into jail and then when they get back, being written up for an unauthorized absence while they were serving that time.

But with the military, there is another catch which goes in part to why we usually don't arrest. Often the offenses that one might be written up for results in Non judicial punishment. NJP covers a lot and it is too much to go into here, but essentially, since double jeopardy applies to judicial and NJP isn't, there is another reason why double jeopardy does not occur.

But what if it was not NJP but court martial. Say a servicemember rapes a civilian out in town. Off hand, I would say that one is still looking at the difference between local juristiction and federal juristiction, though I'm not entirely sure if the latter, on the charge of rape, would hold if the victim is a civilian on civilian lands. Probably should ask a lawyer for that one. Of course, there is still that charge of bringing discredit to the service.

Lets see... around spring 1991 in SE Alabama at first dept. I think it was 2 guys trying to cash a stolen check at a store. One tried to run, I caught him and he had some crack in his pocket. I thought I was the shit for a little bit after that, until one of the shift sgts. told me to do the apperwork and I did'nt know where to start since I was on FTO and being my first or second day on the street. Was carrying a Gen1 Glock 19, as we couldn't carry anything else at that agency.

At the time I really didn't know any better. But after doing that for a few years, you figure out how it works. Basically everyone leaves the PMO...(police station) and locks and loads. We weren't supposed to but even the supervisors were doing it.

Disorderly while intoxicated. I was carrying a 2nd gen Glock 22, which I later sold to another officer (who is still carrying it) to buy a 3rd gen.

The funny thing is her name was the same as Dr Phil's wife, and her birthday was the same as my moms (month, day, and year).

Oh, and she did not have a shirt or bra on

Thanks a lot, but it beats the alternative.I also remember my first drug case, My partner and I locked a guy up on a warrant for VOP and he wanted his coat. I checked it and found a set of works and two bindles of heroin. First traffic citation was to a cab driver who had picked up a shooter at the scene of the incident and would not tell us where he dropped him off. I ended up writting some BS citation relative to his registration card and lack of a change of address and as soon as I was done he told us right where he dropped the guy off. He told me at Court that he didn't want to be seen as co-operating with the 'Man' I got the charges dropped in court.

DUI, March 1998. First night on my own, been out of the building maybe 20 minutes when the guy almost hit me. I had told myself that I was going to spend the first half of the shift just driving around and trying to get to know the district, but that went out the window.

Glock 22, 2nd gen. Still carrying it, although it has since gotten new Trjicons, a new recoil spring, and a new slide stop.

Don't remember my first arrest, but I'm sure it was in Frankfurt Germany in 1991 and I was carrying a 1911 in a leather flap holster. Most arrests over there were for beating the old lady at home, your buddies at the club or just being drunk and stupid in public.
