* ''FanFic/KingsOfRevolution''. Boy, do the TSAB not know when to stop going after Zero for helping the Japanese, especially when [[spoiler:the Britannians are in league with the fanfic's BigBad.]]

* This is combined with a FrameUp in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "The Brave and the Bold" where Franchise/TheFlash is arrested after falling victim to Grodd's brainwashing device while chasing a car thief (Solovar, another Gorilla City resident, which had ''seriously'' gotten the hero's attention). GreenLantern bails him out, telling the police that they couldn't have held him with a pair of handcuffs if he was ''really'' guilty (which Flash then proves by taking them off by himself). Of course, Green Lantern is skeptical of his teammate's story himself, but that changes ''very'' quickly.

* Justin Allard gets this treatment in the ''[[Franchise/BattleTechExpandedUniverse Warrior]]'' trilogy, specifically early right in the first book. In charge of a unit of trainee MechWarriors in light machines out of an exercise, they get ambushed by Liao troops and he in particular finds himself in single combat against an enemy warrior in a ''Rifleman'' that outmasses his own ''Valkyrie'' by a factor of two. He doesn't win, but acquits himself well enough that that enemy 'Mech never enters the battle proper even after he's lost his own machine and one arm...only to find out upon eventual recovery that (because nobody else actually saw that fight and his own half-Capellan heritage that's helped him connect with the locals now makes him an ideal suspect) he's on trial on trumped-up charges of collusion with the enemy. And the KangarooCourt finds him ''guilty'' ...thereby setting off the chain of events that will land him in the arenas on Solaris VII and ultimately in the position of [[spoiler:one of House Liao's own head spymasters]].
