No if you lie to a police officer you will have to go to court and and then you will get probation because I got probation for lying to a cop

The true answer depends upon the jurisdiction in which you're in.  In California, it is unlawful to give false information to a peace officer.  At a minimum, it is a misdemeanor offense.

You most certainly can be charged with providing false information to a law officer and do jail time for it.

Yeah you can but I think it depends how serious the crime is and whatever. You could just get a fine or get let off with a warning..

Yes I just got bonded out today for lying to a cop. In texas it's a class b misdemeanor unless you have warrants (which I did) it's a class a. And it was a $1500 bond.

Depends which country you are living in. It also depends on what kind of police officer you lied to and what matter you lied about? It the policeman is stubborn he won't let you go however if theres a deep matter than of course you ought to go to the JAIL...

It matters/depends on how serious or extreme it is. I heard that you get a warning if its not a big problem but I heard you could get a bill. I may be wrong but I'm just making a little simple prediction or guess. ♥ Anime Rocks

You can but you most likely won't be charged unless you have lied to a police officer and now you  have warrant for your arrest
