Know your rights
A question was asked about what you have to do for the police during a DUI arrest, I will give you a short answer that applies in nearly all situations.
In a McHenry County DUI stop:
1. You are not required to perform field sobriety tests
2. You are not required to take the breathalyzer, urine test or blood test (but if you refuse your license will be suspended for a period of time)
3. You do not have to speak to the police or answer questions
4 You do have to produce a license, if you possess one.
Never lie to the police. If you are the subject of the investigation, do not talk with the police. You do not have to answer questions regarding whether you were driving. You do not have to allow the police to search your vehicle. Do not make any statement that are "off the record" because there is no such thing.
Remember that the police are there to document evidence of the crime. The are really bad at documenting evidence which does not tend to prove the crime. Generally, they will only record evidence that tends to incriminate.
