When To Make The Phone Call
I read an article today on CNN about how to survive being arrested. I regret that I cannot provide the link; it seems to have been purged. It was in the context of a minor alcohol-related arrest, but author stated that when you were granted your phone call in jail, you would not be allowed to pull a phone number off your cell, and in some cases you could only call a land line. Does anyone have any insight on this? Do I need to make sure my attorney has a land line and memorize the number? In the context of a shooting incident, I've always been taught that once I call 911 I should stay on the line with them till they let me go. Assuming the cops show up pretty quickly, I won't have time to call my attorney before they cuff me, so my only option for getting the word out would be the call from jail.
