What to Do When Arrested
Stepping into the backseat of the vehicle with the flashing blue and red lights is never a situation we want to be in. If, for whatever reason, you find yourself handcuffed and driving “downtown,” it is vital that you keep your wits.
Do NOT resist the police officers. Whether or not you will be found guilty at a later point does not matter quite yet. Resisting an officer’s arrest will create issues in your case later on. Being polite and physically cooperative, regardless of their behavior toward you, can go a long way in your case.
Do not talk to the police officer and do not allow the officer to search any of your belongings. Many people make the mistake of trying to explain their innocence to the police officer but end up stating something incriminating without realizing it. You do not need to explain anything to the officer once arrested; the officer has no power over determining your guilt. Assert your desire to speak with your attorney.
The officers may lie to you throughout the arrest to trick you into saying something incriminating. Politely say no to officers who want to come into your home or search your vehicle without a warrant, and do not talk back, resist arrest, or try to run. If you cooperate, this will help your case in the long run.
