There are times when even the most law abiding people find themselves on the wrong side of the law. If you’ve found yourself in a position where you’re being handcuffed and placed into the back of a squad car there are a few things you’ll want to remember.
Don’t resist. Resisting an arrest is a great way to make an already bad situation that much worse. Don’t fight, kick or be combative with the officers.
Don’t try to talk your way out of it. Police and sheriff’s deputies have heard it all— and you won’t be able to talk your way out of those handcuffs.
Be police to the officers and the jailers. Do not answer questions about your case without having an attorney present, but when you’re asked to give them basic contact info, your date of birth and address, you’ll want to provide that.
Contact a friend or family member as soon as you have access to a phone. Arranging bail bonds is much faster and easier when the caller isn’t in custody. Make sure to tell them what jail you’re being held at, what your charges are and how much your bail is. This will all be very helpful information to pass along to the bondsman.
