Can asomeone have the police fingerprint you for something?
Question Details: My friend thinks that I stole his pill bottle and wants to have it fingerprinted. Can he?
Your "friend" cannot fingerprint you without your consent or agreement. However, he can report the matter to the police and if the authorities believe that may have commited a crime, they could--if they choose--investigate. As part of that, they could compare fingerprints on or near the bottle to yours, if yours are already on file (such as from a prior brush with the law) or possibly seek a warrant to require you to be fingerprinted. This would be at the authorities' discretion, not your "friend's".
