Protect Yourself Once Arrested
In the wake of an arrest, the most important thing you can do is to remain calm and be very mindful of what you say and do with regard to the arresting officer. Do not attempt to flee but keep your hands where the officer can see them; sudden movements can make officers very nervous.
Overall, be polite and respectful to police. Once arrested, do not attempt to resist as this will add resisting arrest to your DWI charges.
Other advice includes:
- Exercise your right to remain silent if questioned, other than requesting to speak to a lawyer
- Use your one phone call but remember that the phone you use may be tapped
- Do not act defiant or talk about filing complaints so police are not tempted to retaliate
- Obtain the names and badge numbers of the officer who arrested you
By simply remaining silent and calm, you can help your case immensely. Your next move after being arrested is to retain a professional and tenacious Concord criminal defense lawyer who can begin building you a legal defense tailored to your situation.
