I was roped into it

I was roped into it is a figure of speech in which someone is saying that they were forced to get involved into something, such as a bad situation, dilemma, crisis or even some sort of project. While many times, you are roped into doing something illegal or that has potential risks, it can also be used more mildly pertaining to a job or task you werent very excited about doing but were convinced to do it.
