To not want to go on holiday with a criminal?

I'm booked to go on holiday with my friend next week, but the other day she was arrested and held in custody for a good few hours (she bragged all over social media about this). Yet, she won't tell me what this arrest was for.

AIBU to feel uncomfortable to go abroad for a week alone with her not knowing what she's done???

You will need to tell her that you are cancelling unless she can tell you what she was arrested for.

She’s not a criminal if she hasn’t been convicted of an offence.

Yanbu to want to know what’s happened, especially if she’s talking about it on social media.

Unless she was arrested on suspicion of murdering her last holiday companion, what does it matter? wink

It might be drug trafficking and she could be using you as a mule

It matters if the arrest was about a suspected drug find in a suitcase....

You sound a bit precious.

She may struggle with passport control

She's not a criminal if she hasn't been convicted and if she's allowed to travel she's presumably not out on bail (i.e. she hasn't been charged with anything).

It's a weird thing to brag about on social media.

It's also weird to immediately assume your friend must be a criminal.

I don't think she has to tell you what it's about.

If you don't want to go, don't go. You don't have to go on holiday with anyone you don't want to.

I seriously doubt it.
