What Do You Do When a Police Officer Stops You?
You are traveling the highway. All of a sudden sirens are screaming and lights are flashing. A trooper is directing you to pull over.
Or while walking down the sidewalk, you see a disturbance ahead. Before you know it a police officer is demanding identification.
You want to be a good citizen... but just what does that mean?
We ask a defense attorney and a police chief for their response to the question, "What do you do when a cop stops you?"
