Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Jo C, I’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Which police station?
You can always try to renegotiate with the officer.
They will probably agree. I'm surprised they want to do interviews on a Saturday evening when they need cell space for other things.
But the reality is that if they refuse and you dont' attend then you face the risk they will just come and arrest you at another time.
To obviate that you could surrender on Monday but then the officer might not be available.
Yes, it might be. It might not.
But they still have powers of arrest.
If you don't surrender they will come and arrest you.
Or possibly summons.
They won't do that. Unless you have horrendous history. It is not really labour efficient for them to do that.
You shouldn't be.
Obviously sometimes officers will do things that are not common or not lawful sometimes. But if all is normal you shouldn't be.
Apart from anything else, I don't think they would want their cell space clogged up until Monday unless this were the only way they could get you in and the offence was very serious.
Then inferences can be drawn but it is still often the right thing to do.
Delighted to continue with this but please rate my answer.
That they can draw inferences - the inference basically means invite the jury to wonder if you made it all up when you offer a subsequent defence.
But normally you can comment upon allegations.
