Are you there?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, they can arrest you and they will. That is criminal damage.Do you have any previous convictions?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what Can I do to avoid that
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
They might offer a caution. Difficult to predict really as they will be of the view that this is abusive behaviour and phones are often high value.But he might not give evidence against you so it might be worth risking a charge.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he went there yesterday night to say that I broke his phone and they called me and I confirm
What others evidence do they need?

I'm not sure what you mean?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You said"But he might not give evidence against you so it might be worth risking a charge"but he was there to say that I have broken his phone and I confirmed. So I do not understand what you mean by he might not give evidence
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Give evidence in court. If you put them to proof they have to prove it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
so does it mean that if they arrest me, I can say nothing during the arrest or denied that I have broken the phone?
