If I am stopped by a police officer in Mississippi and they ask me if I was drinking, what should I say?
First and foremost, don’t drink and drive. It’s much safer to take a cab or an Uber ride home and cheaper in the long run. If you are stopped and the police officer asks if you’ve been drinking, it is important to remember that you do have a right to remain silent under our laws and that by remaining silent and not admitting to any violation cannot be used against you at a later point. If you have been drinking and you believe you’re impaired to the point where you should not have been operating a vehicle, it’s always best to speak to an attorney before you speak to the police.
