What happens if I get into a fight in traffic?

Posted by:

You get the hell beat out of you, unless you can fight real well. Seriously, this is a very bad idea, since people are getting shot and killed in these road rage incidents all the time these days. It’s a very dangerous world we’re living in today.

Better answer: If you are in a “road rage” situation and you so much as put your hand inside the other person’s car, it is a felony called “Burglary of a Conveyance.” Putting you ...

What do you do if your friend mentions something illegal on the phone?

Posted by:

Answer: Start breathing heavily and suggestively into the phone…(not!)

Better answer: Talking about something illegal is a crime called “conspiracy,” and people are arrested and indicted almost daily for the crime of conspiracy. The only way to avoid arrest and indictment for wire fraud (at a minimum), and any number of other charges relating to the actual suggested conduct, is to rebuke your friend immediately. If you even joke that you might agree to participate, you can and will be indicted, ...

What do you do if a friend pulls dope out in your car?

Posted by:

Answer: Brake abruptly while jamming his head into the passenger side dashboard.

Better answer: Pull over and get your friend and the dope out of your car immediately – the only exception: the friend can stay, if the dope gets dumped immediately out of your car. Why? You can be arrested for “constructive possession” even if you are NOT the one holding the drugs. It is only required for your conviction of this crime, that the drugs be “within” your “reach ...

What do you do if you’re at a party and the other kids pull out the drugs?

Posted by:

Answer: Strike the junkies repeatedly on or about the head! (Do not do this, as I was only attempting to be humorous)

Better answer: Get out of that party immediately. When the police arrive (pursuant to a warrant or just an anonymous and yet corroborated “tip,” those in actual possession of the drugs will NOT be the only ones arrested. That’s right – YOU will be arrested too (based on the same laws pertaining to “constructive possession,” defined above); and yes, ...

Can I be charged with trafficking or delivery of a controlled substance, for selling or just giving someone my own prescription pills?

Posted by:

Change the word “pills” to “cocaine,” and there’s your answer. It makes no difference which “controlled substance” or narcotic is being sold or given away.

What do you do if you’re asked to take a breathalyzer test?

Posted by:

Inquire as to whether the officer knows if a 2 pencil is required for this test.

Better answer: If you were not drinking alcohol, take the breath test. Why? If you refuse to take the breathalyzer/intoxilyzer test – and assuming the police officer had the requisite “cause” to request that you take the test, then you will suffer a “license revocation” of at least 12 months in most jurisdictions.

Also, a “refusal” to take the test in Florida, is now a separate ...

If someone gets drunk in my home and they end up hurting someone in a wreck, am I in trouble?

Posted by:

If lawyers get involved, “yes.” Lawyers always get involved today, so the answer is always “yes.” Here is why:

If someone gets drunk at your house and you gave them any alcohol – and if they then get into a car accident resulting in death or serious injuries, you will be sued. A lawyer representing the injured person or the family of the person killed, will start with your homeowner’s policy, and build from there.

Can I be charged with DUI when all I took was my own prescription medication?

Posted by:

Absolutely, and it happens all the time. If your “own prescription medication” caused you to be “impaired” or “under the influence” of that particular “controlled substance” while “operating a motor vehicle,” then yes, absolutely, you can be charged under these circumstances with DUI.

If a police officer asks me to get out of my car and do these roadside drunk tests, do I have to do them?

Posted by:

No. There is no legal requirement that you do these “roadside sobriety tests,” which they now call “field sobriety exercises” – since the Supreme Court disallowed “tests.”  You cannot be arrested for the separate offense of “refusal to obey police officer,” for exercising your legal right to refuse to perform these “tests” or “exercises.” If you are arrested, it will not be a consequence of your refusal to perform these tests; it will be for the offense of DUI –for ...

What do I do or say if I’m pulled over?

Posted by:

Pray.

The legal answer: Be very polite, respectful, maintain eye contact with the officer and always say “yes officer,” or “yes Sir,” or yes Maam,” while never making a face suggesting disbelief in what he or she is saying. (Let’s face it, more often than not you know why you’re being pulled over.)

It’s best to personify humility and respect, if you would like to have the discretionary option of receiving a “warning” as opposed to a ticket! This works almost every ...
