If so, what for?

Couple of times for a couple of things. Got done with some weed when I was 17. My mate was with me and he got strip searched at the station while I got a cup of tea, he did'nt have any.
The other time I was caught up in a anti facist march in which there was a massive fight and I got caught between the police and the violence and got scared and beaten by a nice man on a horse then thrown in a van and locked up for a few hours. Both times they let me off with a caution. Lucky boy.
I was happily protesting my disgust when ahead of me it kicked off with some of the hardcore marchers and some infiltraters. Then I turned around to make myself scarse and was faced with a wall of police with shields and on horse back. The lesser of two evils really dictated which direction I would run. I chose the boys in blue and was greeted with one of those whip trucheons to the shoulder and leather gloves to my collar. Police men are rough when they are sorting out disorder.
I always wondered to what extent the images shown on the news during protests were accurate. Seems they are.
If so I was there too. I remember there was a point where we were all cornered in a field, and the police lined up on horseback at the other end of the field and charged us! It was like a medievel battle.
The aim of the march was to trash the BNP book store, which was based in a quite residential street somewhere!

first time: climbing a railway embankment when drunk to take a photograph of Sainsbury's on Queen Street. Once when walking around the park at the end of my house in Winchester, and once at Brighton train station because I was on my way to ATP, and strategically dodged the police with sniffer dogs because I knew the blanket in my bag probably smelt of weed. Not only did they question my actions, they also searched me. Not in a fnarr hilarious way, but in a pisspoor 'let's see if you're keeping any illegal narcotics underneath the cassette in your walkman way'
* ...waaaaay' way.
Not technically arrested but busted for buying booze in an offie that was under surveillance for being notorious for serving under age people. The police approached me as I left the shop with a carrier bag full of alcopops and beer. I tried to run but couldn't get away. Thought I was awesome giving them a fake name and address until it dawned on me that I was in a police van and they were driving me to the fake address expecting to find my parents. Had to confess as we approached this bullshit address. They got annoyed, took me to my actual home where I was cautioned in front of my mum. Great.
My dad had to drive me to the police station the following week to complete the paperwork for the caution. I got lectured for ages by some sanctimonious senior police guy (sergeant or something). Caught my dad suppressing laughter at one point.
kind of. I was 14 or 15. :/
i got a good beating when i was escorted home in a police car.
not the police. (not that they wouldnt)
Like a vacation. Cable TV, movie nights, basketball courts, plenty of drugs and homemade alcohol, the occassional guy getting thrown off the 3rd tier. They give you a job: 14 cents an hour, not too shabby.
You don't even have to make a reservation. Just do something semi-stupid, and zingo, it's vacation time.
