AnswerPolice Officers usually have latitude in making arrests at their discretion. Notable exceptions are Domestic Violence, where law commonly dictates an arrest must be made, or the Officer can be placed in legal jeopardy.

Police Officers cannot grant immunity for any criminal action (usually only a Prosecutor's Office can offer this, and then only for laws under their jurisdiction.

Police chiefs are not generally in the habit of handing out badges, even to their friends.A badge, "registered" (not even sure what that means) or not, does not give the bearer powers of arrest. Law enforcement officers must be appointed by a law enforcement agency and certified by the state before they have police powers.If you were to try and arrest someone with just a badge, you would be subject to charges of impersonation of a law enforcement officer and possible false imprisonment. These are serious charges, often felonies.

People may be arrested but not charged. There may not be enough evidence for trial, or the prosecutor doesn't want to charge the person. Further, an arrest is not a conviction, and a person is innocent until proven guilty in a competent court of law. An officer may think there was enough reason to arrest, but it isn't worth it to pursue. People may be released without charges because they are not a threat or escape risk, because the charge is very minor, because the person posts bail, or many other reasons.

It's unlikely. If you were arrested, held and released, and they told you that they may pick them up later, it just means that you should stay out of trouble for the next year or so. And not sue them for false arrest. If you get in trouble again, or try and sue for false arrest, they'll go ahead and charge you. Other than that, you should be okay.ADDED: Since the decision to charge or not to charge does not rest with either the complainant or the police, it is likely that the prosecutor filed a Nolle Prosequi in your case. Just because they declined to prosecute this particular offense does not mean that they cannot pick up the charge again at a later date (e.g.: if you assaulted the same person again - or, you make a habit of going around assaulting people), however, under normal circumstances, re-instituting the charge is highly unlikely.
