What do police say when they arrest you? This is a very common question of our DUI attorneys from our clients in Georgia who are arrested for drunk driving or drugged driving. Georgia is the only state in the Union where important legal advisements are routinely read immediately after arrest at the roadside, rather than at the police station.
Many shocked and surprised clients later assume that the police interrogation case, Miranda v. Arizona is the basis of what is being read. In 99% of all DUI GA cases, if anything at all is being read at the roadway to you by a law enforcement officer, it is the Georgia implied consent notice, and not the Miranda rights words. If any DUI lawyer tells you otherwise, he or she may be misleading you to try to get you to pay that Firm a retainer fee.
