Know Your Rights: DUI Arrests

In the movies and cop dramas, we usually see defendants informed of their rights when they're arrested. They usually go something like, "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney…" But what about your rights before you're arrested? At our firm, we want to make sure that drivers know about their rights and what to do or not to do when pulled over for suspected driving under the influence.

  • You have the right to refuse field sobriety tests.
  • If you're over the age of 21, you have the right to refuse a portable breath test at the roadside.
  • You have the right to politely refuse to answer an officer's questions about how much you have had to drink or whether you are drunk.
  • If you are arrested, you have the right to remain silent. You have the right to call your attorney and to have your attorney present during any questioning that ensues.

Every arrest is different and every case needs to be approached based upon the specific evidence and information at hand. For experienced help regarding your case, please do not hesitate to Thomas & Paulk. We are ready to fight on your behalf!
