I was arrested during a traffic stop, now what?
While verbally refusing to consent to any search, you must cooperate with and be polite to the officer(s) involved. This means: do not argue with police, do not resist the arrest, and do not struggle with the police officers in any way. Remember, the entire stop is likely to be audio and video recorded.
DO NOT answer questions of any police officers. DO NOT have a pleasant conversation with the police at any time. Rather, advise the police officers that your lawyer has advised you to never speak to police officers without your lawyer being present. In fact, it is not a good idea to speak to anyone about your case in person or by telephone (including, but not limited to, police, friends, family, co-workers, fellow inmates, or jail staff). The only person you should speak with about your case is your lawyer. Contact our office immediately at (702) 905-1690 to schedule a free consultation. We will come to see you at the jail.
