Charles Branton discusses how to tell if you are under arrest and what to do if you are arrested.
Most of the time the arresting police officer will verbally tell you that you are under arrest and proceed to handcuff you or walk you to the nearest police vehicle. If you are arrested, the first thing you want to do is to ask for a lawyer. Do not try to engage the police officer or try to explain your innocence until your lawyer is present.
