What To Do If You Are Stopped For A DUI In Indiana
It can be overwhelming and stressful to get pulled over by a police officer, and even more so if you’ve had anything to drink. If you are stopped by a police officer, it is important to:
- Cooperate with the police officer, by pulling over and providing your license and vehicle registration when asked, as failure to do so could result in an additional charge of resisting a police officer
- Remain calm and be polite when speaking to the officer
- Remember that you have the right to remain silent and you do not have to answer any questions that might incriminate you, which means that you do not have to tell the officer you have been drinking
In the state of Indiana, you also have the right to refuse field sobriety tests without legal consequences. It is acceptable to say that your lawyer has told you never to agree to such tests. However, in Indiana having a driver’s license is considered implied consent to submit to chemical testing. If you refuse to take a breathalyzer test, you could have your license suspended. If you are arrested for a DUI, do not speak to anyone unless your attorney is present.
