While I agree that Cooper arrested Ben in the mistaken thought that he
killed Laura, he did *not* arrest him for murder.  We don't see the
booking, but I'd assume he was arrested because he refused to co-operate
in a murder investigation ("I'm going out for a sandwitch.") and gave
false statements about same (did not reveal his personal and 'professional'
relationship with Laura).

In deep yes, over his head, no.
