84,209.  Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K, for without having done anything wrong he was arrested one fine morning.  Franz Kafka, The Trial p1

 

96,185.  ‘But what for?’ he asked.  ‘We are not authorized to tell you that.  Go to your room and wait there.  Proceedings have been instituted against you, and you will be informed of everything in due course.’  ibid.  p3

 

96,186.  The Inspector flung the matchbox down on the table.  ‘You are labouring under a great delusion,’ he said.  ‘These gentlemen here and myself have no standing whatever in this affair of yours, indeed we know hardly anything about it.  We might wear the most official uniforms and your case would not be a penny the worse.  I can't even confirm that you are charged with an offence, or rather I don't know whether you are.  You are under arrest, certainly, more than that I do not know.’  (Arrest & Trial)  ibid.  p10 

 

 

4,952.  You’re under arrest for multiple counts of murder.  You have the right to not much at all, really.  Do you have anything to say in your defense?  (Right & Arrest)  Derek Landy, Mortal Coil
 

 

63,789.  He sipped at a weak hock and seltzer

As he gazed at the London skies

Through the Nottingham lace of the curtains

Or was it his bees-wing eyes? ...

He rose and he put down The Yellow Book.

He staggered 0 – and, terrible-eyed,

He brushed past the palms on the staircase

And was helped to a hansom outside.  John Betjeman 1906-1984, English poet, The Arrest of Oscar Wilde at the Cadogan Hotel, 1937.

63,792.  They [The Spice Girls] must be arrested immediately.  Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad

 

 

63,793.  During the period of house arrest, I had an electronic manacle around my leg for 24 hours a day, and for someone who has tried to give others liberty all their adult life, that is absolutely intolerable.  Julian Assange

 

 

65,829.  ‘By the way, Doctor, I shall want your cooperation.’

 

‘I shall be delighted.’

 

‘You don't mind breaking the law?’

 

‘Not in the least.’

 

‘Nor running a chance of arrest?’

 

‘Not in a good cause.’

 

‘Oh, the cause is excellent!’

 

‘Then I am your man.’

 

‘I was sure that I might rely on you.’  (Burglary & Cause & Law & Arrest)  Arthur Conan Doyle, A Scandal in Bohemia

 

 

89,745.  Well I did hear a rumour that the Statue of Liberty has been brought in for questioning.  She may be with Al Qaeda.  (Statue & Arrest & Rumour)  Alex Jones, Terrorstorm

 

 

96,966.  It was always at night – the arrests invariably happened at night.  The sudden jerk out of sleep, the round hand shaking your shoulder, the lights glaring in your eyes, the ring of hard faces round the bed.  In the vast majority of cases there was no trial, no report in the press.  People simply disappeared, always during the night.  Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten.  George Orwell, 1984

 

 

97,403.  Nobody’s ever been arrested for a murder; they have only ever been arrested for not planning it properly.  (Arrest & Murder)  Terry Hayes, I Am Pilgrim

 

 

102,860.  I had Martin explain to me three times what he got arrested for [inside trading] because it sounds an awful lot like what I do here every day.  (Office & Arrest)  The Office US s3e9: The Convict, Kevin  

 

 

105,504.  Most commonly people are arrested for sharing or liking images of their friends and loved ones who are killed by Israeli forces.  (Palestine & Arrest)  Abby Martin, The Empire Files: Silencing Palestine: Prison & Repression, 2017

 

 

119,526.  Harvey just called from the 18th precinct.  He’s got arrested.  For buying heroin.  (Gangstas & Arrest)  Ray Donovan s5e8: Horses, Lena

 

 

129,280.  Ray’s been nicked.  I don’t know the full details yet.  Vinny’s gone to find out.  He’s gonna phone ya later.  Something about helping an escaped prisoner or something.  (Gangstas & Arrest)  Fox XIII: The Family … and the Future, Kenny

 

 

131,028.  I’m in the US where bounty hunters hunt down and capture fugitives who skip bail.  Bounty hunters are unregulated operators, part of the $14 billion bail industry, that loans people money to get out of jail.  The people they go after are the poorest of society.  They don’t have money to bail themselves out.  In America justice and making money go hand in hand.  (Arrest & Law & Justice)  Stacey Dooley: Face to Face with the Bounty Hunters, BBC 2019
