Most people never want to hear the words “you have the right to remain silent.” Rather than concentrating on the notification of an important Constitutional right, most people will immediately recognize that they are being arrested. If you or a loved one are arrested, there are specific issues you need to keep in mind.
If you are taken into custody, you will be searched for weapons or contraband and taken to a police station, where you will be further searched and then fingerprinted. This is not an option. Refusing to cooperate will not reflect well on you later and you could even be subjected to further charges, such as violating California Penal Code section 148(a), resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer in the performance of his duties.
