What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?California A ex friend of mine was pulled over by the cops on September 4th for supposebly having a brake light out in my car. I was not in the car at the time, nor did I know my ex friend had my car. I recieved a phone call from my ex friend telling me that my car was getting impounded because he was driving on a suspended license. I am on disability for my Bi Polar. When in stressful situations, I tend to overreact which makes things worse for myself. As soon as I head my car was going to get impounded I had my friend take me to where my ex friend was pulled over at. When I got to where my car was, I approached the police and told them who I was. The police interpreted what I said as me saying that I knew my ex friend was driving my car. It was clear to me that if I was going to try and argue what they had just said, I probably would go to jail for my attitude. The police told me that it was an automatic 30 day hold before I could get my car out. That being said, with current registration, current insurance and me having a valid drivers license. My ex friends suspended license was for back child support. There was no alcohol/drugs found in car. I was given a number to call to request a impound hearing in order for me to try and get my car out before 30 days. I went to the police station after several attempts calling the number and leaving messages. I talked directly to the person about requesting a hearing, instead I was told that I could pick my car up in 30 days with $1700 for storage fees. This was after I told the officer at the number that I was a single mom to a 6 yr old son who is Autistic and has ADD. And that both my son and I collected disability and that I simply could not afford the storage fees. His responded with he didnt care one way or the other. After that failed attempt of requesting a impound hearing, I sent registered letter to the police station requesting a impound hearing. A officer called and left a message in reply to my letter saying that if I wanted to get my car out before the 30 days, that the only person who could get it out was my ex friend who got it impounded. Not me, the registered owner, with a valid drivers license. My dad and I went to internal affairs to file a complaint. After a week went by with my dad leaving several messages, the detective finally called back saying that they wouldnt do anything because it said in the police report that I admitted to saying that I knew my friend was driving my car. I never said that, I did say to the police that impounded my car as well as every other officer I spoke with, had I hung up the phone and reacted on impulse, I would have called the police and filed a missing/stolen report on my car. It has been 30 days and I have probably lost it. I was sent a notice for lien of sale on my car. Is there anything I can do to make a complaint or acknowledgment for being what I feel unfairly treated?
