  • Had the same question. @Sam why is this statement "I suspect he must have told the police on me" is not ok? – captain Sep 5 '19 at 0:49
  • @nouveau , at this moment I am uncertain. It may actually be acceptable usage. Out of billions of webpages on the internet, there are 5 results for the exact phrase "tell someone on someone". Not many. Regardless, it may be alright. – Sam Sep 5 '19 at 13:32
