...three people: two men and a woman. niether of them knew how to drive.

Does that mean that neither of the men knew how to drive, or none of the three did?

Maybe, the men had no arms and thus could not drive a car?

Maybe the tires were for a motorcycle and the woman knew how to ride one

Maybe the "men" were children

This looks like another one of those questions where you should be able to ask yes/no questions to get to "the answer", otherwise, there are many possibilities.

The woman was in a wheelchair, as was the robber.

The men were in wheelchairs, but the robber was not.

There was a witness who could say how tall the robber was.

The tire tracks were for a bike, with her fingerprints the only ones on the handles.

The two men were blind, and could not have been the robber.

The two men were siamese twins, but the robber was not.

The police are gender biased.

The men ratted her out.

The only thing that is helpful in this is the tire tracks.....since no one knows how to drive, then the woman had to have been dropped off. The tracks lead up to the house had to have been from mud on the tires i'm guessing (not rubber) which means the woman had to have gotten mud on her shoes when she got out of the car whenever she had committed the robbery.

When you say she couldn't drive do you mean she couldn't physicaly or she didn't have a license

If it was something like the licenese maybe she was arrested for driving when she shouldn't have.

The question never states she was arrested for robbing the bank

"She confessed" was the first thing that came to my mind.

Slightly less obviously...the men were the owners of the house, and the woman was a stranger?

Obviously if a woman is at a house with two men she must be loose. She prolly told her baby's daddy about all the cool stuff at the house. After he was caught, she was later arrested for aiding him

Maybe I'm missing something, but how does that make her guilty? Wouldn't that prove her innocence, or were the cops just prejudiced against paraplegics?

This may have been stated already, I have only read half of the first page, and not the whole thread. But he stated NEITHER of them knew how to drive. Neither is used typically as an eliminator of two items in a two item set, not an eliminator of three or more.

Thus the woman was arrested because she was the only one who knew how to drive and thus the only one capable of driving away from the robbery

The "tire tracks" were her wheelchair tracks. Tricky. It was a good concept for a riddle, playing on the natural tendency to assume tire tracks referred to car tires, but I think it needed a little better setup to make it satisfying and result in that "aha!" moment.

The riddle never specifies that their where any more than 3 people total at the house including cops SO if there are only three people and the cops plural new who to arrest they whoever the didn't arrest could have been the cops. The wheel chair works as well. And who said all cops knew how to drive some ride horses some ride bicycles and the tire marks could have just been extra info or the marks could have been going away from the house...
