Warrants? Often Assault Family Violence cases are filed even if you’ve already left the scene. This is called filing the case “at large.” Police officers called to the scene will gather information on you to file a case. In some cases they mail notice of the filing to your address. In other cases, a case gets filed, a warrant gets issued, and you never know you’ve been charged until the day you get arrested.
