What to do when arrested

What to do when arrested

You are under no obligation to tell the police anything. The police may lead you to believe that it would be in your best interest to do so but if they have enough evidence to arrest you, talking to them will not make a difference. People believe things will go better for them if they answer the officer’s questions. What happens is you end up digging yourself into a hole you can’t get out of.

Be respectful and let the police know you want to talk with an attorney. Once you do this the police should not continue to question you. If they do continue to ask questions you will need to be firm and again state your request to talk with an attorney. In some cases the police will ask you if you want to talk to an attorney – say yes. With either situation call Gaborsky Law Office 612-275-0169.

Remember to remain calm and do not argue with the police. It will not help and it never works. It will only make matters worse for you. Try to remember as much as you can about what happened when you were stopped and when you were arrested. This information could be useful to your defense.
