Perhaps the most important thing someone can remember to do when they find him or herself in the middle of a police encounter is to keep calm.  

Getting into an argument with the police, no matter how right you may be, is not going to do any good.  The police will most likely describe you as being “uncooperative” or “combative.”

Instead, keep calm and lawyer up. 

Tell the officers that you would like to have your attorney present for any questioning.  After you have asserted your right to have an attorney present, the police cannot ask you anymore questions and the interrogation must end.

Keep calm and lawyer up.
