    I was in Australia for 4years but right now I'm in India. I applied for my national police check. I got it last week and it's showing an offence in which Dandenong court has issued warrant against me. The court date was on 20 January 2012. The offence is that I refused to accompany them to the station for the breathe test. This offence was totally out of my knowledge. I want get full details of this offence when and where it had been done. Please, if someone can guide me how to get details regarding this under Criminal Law, I will be very thankful.

    if you or someone refuses to accompany a police to the police station, there is no need to issue warrant for your arrest, you will handcuffed and arrested on the spot

    DJSPOOKY is wrong, unfortunately, as there is no power of arrest for that offence in Victoria.

    You could ask for disclosure under the Criminal Procedure Act, though they probably won't release it until the warrant is executed.
