The Day I Almost Got Arrested


Let me tell you why I’m so passionate about legal protection. This is a true story about what happened to me.

I was sitting in my car outside my grandmother’s house one day after dark. I had intended to visit her but I didn’t know if she was awake or not. I could have called ahead but I knew if I called and she was sleeping, she would have had a hard time getting back to sleep. So, I decided to go and see if I could tell if she was up or not before I knocked on the door.

When I arrived, the shades were drawn but I thought I saw lights shining out from the inside. So, I stayed in my car for a moment trying to decide whether to knock or not. Just as I had decided that I had better not chance it, a police officer approached my vehicle and knocked on my window. I guess I looked suspicious sitting out front of the house and he stopped to investigate.

Initially, I felt a little sheepish about the whole thing. I knew instantly what I must have looked like from his perspective. However, when the officer asked me to step out of the car, I realized the situation was much more serious than I had originally thought. My embarrassment turned quickly to white-knuckle fear.

To make a long story short, I was about to be arrested and taken in for questioning when I remembered I had something called LegalShield – meaning I had 24/7 access to legal counsel via an 800 number in the case of an emergency.

So when the officer asked me to step out of the car, I handed him my LegalShield card that states he is required to allow me to contact my attorney immediately if he intends to question or detain me. The officer asked me to “hang on a minute” and took the card, my license and registration back to his patrol car a second time. When he returned to my vehicle, his demeanor was totally different. He apologized for the mistake and wished me a good night and went on his way.

Because of LegalShield. I didn’t get arrested that night. We all have a right to an attorney in situations such as that but how many of us have access – not to mention affordable access.

The peace of mind this membership gives allows me to worry less and live more!

Thank you for reading my story.
