A POLICE OFFICER STOPPED ME. WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?
You do not have to answer the police officer's questions. If the police officer asks you how much you had to drink, you do not have to give him answer. You do not have to undergo the police officer's FSTs. If the police officer asks you "can I look in your eyes to see if your Ok to drive?" you can tell him "no". Keep in mind police officers are very clever in how they ask their questions. They will never tell you that they are gathering evidence against you. They will always couch their requests to make it look like they are only trying to help you. Also, if the police officer asks you to submit to a portable breath test or PBT, you don't have to. A PBT is not the same thing as the Intoxilyzer, however. Keep that in mind while reading the information below.
THE OFFICER IS SAYING HE MAY REVOKE MY LICENSE. IS THAT TRUE?
But if the police officer decides to arrest you and then reads the Admin Per Se form to you, then the government can force you to give up your blood or breath for a chemical test. If you then resist, the government can torture your blood or breath out of you. They will strap you to a chair, tie down your arm, scare you hell, and then take the blood anyway they can get it. Just as scary, if you do agree to the blood draw, the police officers will probably draw your blood on the side of the road.
If the government has charged you with driving under the influence, you must hire a criminal defense attorney who will aggressively defend you. We stand ready to help you fight the government's onslaught. Contact Vladimir Gagic at his Phoenix office today by calling 602-635-1536.
