An arrest occurs when a police officer takes an individual into custody. It’s important to remember that an officer can only arrest you if they saw you commit a crime, they have reason to believe that you’ve committed a crime, or a judge has issued an arrest warrant that has been supported by probable cause.
Other tips to keep in mind after you’ve been arrested to avoid making your situation worse include:
- Don’t resist arrest – you may be charged with resisting or even battery on an officer.
- Don’t say anything – per your Miranda rights, you have a right to remain silent, and anything you say could be used against you in court.
- Call a lawyer – the sooner you hire a criminal defense attorney, the sooner they can help you gain release from jail and begin working on your case. If you can’t afford an attorney, a public defender will be provided for you.
