If You Are Arrested (Clip out and Save)

If you are stopped by the police, or arrested, whether you are guilty or not, you have the same rights. You can protect these rights best if you use this information.

If you are stopped by the police:
  1. You may remain silent; you do not have to answer any questions other than your name and address.

  2. The police may search you for weapons by patting the outside of your clothing.

  3. Whatever happens, you must not resist arrest even if you are innocent.
