this is a GENERIC definition... BOP is usually decide in the APPEALS Courts. Links at the bottom Breach of Peace. However, even if there is a right to repossession, the repossession agent cannot Breach the Peace in conducting the repossession. That means that the repossession agent in repossessing the vehicle cannot: forcibly remove you from the vehicle; stop you on the street or highway like a law enforcement arrest; enter a closed garage or your home; break into your house; create a disturbance such as a fight or other altercation; threaten any of the above actions; or pretend to be a law enforcement officer while conducting the repossession. If any of these actions occurred you should immediately contact an attorney.
