Even If You Believe You Are Stone Cold Sober, Don't Resist Arrest

Nobody wants to be falsely accused of anything, especially a crime. However, if you have been accused of a crime by the police and they either arrest you on the spot or serve you with an arrest warrant, you cannot resist the arrest. Even if you KNOW you are innocent.

Resisting arrest is, itself, a serious crime with consequences perhaps even worse than those of a DUI. If you have been arrested or told that you are going to be arrested, comply with the police. Do not resist, hide or evade them in any way.

What you should do is call an experienced attorney like the attorneys at Handy Law. They will be able to provide the aggressive defense you need to fight the charges against you. Especially if you are innocent. If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and experienced legal defense.
