Can u go to jail if someone reports u from another state in the U.S for no crime commited without evidence?

If someone wants to call the cops on you and you are from a different state and the other is in a different state too, can u go to jail without doing nothing at all even if they know ur address?

    Police don't put you in jail for "doing nothing at all", so naturally you would have nothing to worry about.

    However, if you did do something illegal, police will take tips from the moons of Saturn if they need to, and if they believe there is sufficient evidence that you've committed a crime, they will arrest you.

  • What state you are born in has no bearing on anything. If a report is filed that provides sufficient evidence of a crime after investigation, you can be charged. The decision is made by the local DA, who can only act on crimes within his/her jurisdiction.

    No. This is not North Korea or Iran. You cannot go to jail unless you are charged, found guilty by a jury of your peers and sentenced to incarceration.

    They'll most likely give you subpoena in the mail
