Brand new player, got arrested in record time for...?

I'm not sure why exactly, but I know it wasn't a valid reason!

 

I'd seen a wagon off in the distance, rode towards it to find its driver dead and some dude standing over a woman laying on the ground.  The guy told me to mind my own business, jumped on his horse and took off, while I picked up the woman ("stranger") to put on the back of my horse and go get help.  Some other guy rode past and reported me as having committed this crime, apparently a robbery.  Just like that, I'm wanted...moments later I'm arrested and put in jail...without ever having gotten the chance to explain that I was just trying to help...

Is this just an expected part of the gameplay?  Just...be careful of being around anything that could be misconstrued as a crime because you WILL be wanted for a crime, no questions asked?

 

Just kind of funny, its literally the first thing I did in this game after having finished the starting missions.  Not the greatest beginning here and looks like something that could happen quite often...just curious.  Is there a way around this somehow?  Something I missed...a way to explain or something?

Yeah, technically you committed a crime; Kidnapping. That's what the game treats it. You'd get that even if you captured an actual enemy or criminal (unless not part of a mission) IIRR, not sure as there could be some exceptions.

Not criminals, there's an escaped convict asking ypu to shoot his shackels. You can tie him up and put on ur horse, no passerby will nudge. Can't drop him at the sheriff's though...
