Use caution when celebrating the Bulldogs this weekend

Playing Auburn at home tomorrow night is sure to mean a night of fun for many Bulldogs fans. It is imperative that you ensure you are ready to take part in these activities if you are heading out to the game or a watch party. One thing to remember is that driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is illegal in Georgia so don't fall into the temptation of trying to drive yourself home if you've had a few drinks or have consumed drugs of any sort.

You know the police department is likely going to be out in full force this weekend in a bid to help keep the streets safe. With this in mind, you need to ensure that you are taking every step possible to stay out of legal issues. This means not driving impaired, but it also means not having drugs in your possession or having open containers in a vehicle.

We know that people will sometimes make mistakes. If you end up facing criminal charges for possession of drugs or driving under the influence of drugs, you must start to think about your defense as soon as you come into contact with a law enforcement officer. This means that you have to be careful about what you say and do during this interaction.

Remember that you have rights. Invoke these when appropriate. For example, you might opt to invoke your right to remain silent and have an attorney with you before you are questioned. We are here to help you from the initial interview with police officers through the final outcome of your case. We want to make sure our clients aren't railroaded at any point during the criminal justice process.
