Domestic violence charges in California cannot be ignored or handled privately. Per California law, a 911 call concerning a domestic violence incident will lead to an arrest of one of the parties if the officer finds any evidence of an altercation. Formal charges can be filed by the state prosecutor, even if the victim does not press charges. These strict laws stem from public outrage over highly publicized domestic violence cases that have resulted in serious injuries and even death when the parties were not immediately separated and brought to justice.
