Colorado Springs Man Arrested for Weapons OffenseBy Clawson & Clawson LLP October 23, 2013
Colorado Springs police were called to a neighborhood after receiving a morning complaint that a man was firing a gun in his yard. The complaint stated that the man came out of his house, fired the gun and then went back inside. There was no information regarding how many shots he allegedly fired or what—if anything—was the target. Officers arrived and attempted to question the man but he reportedly wouldn't come out of his home. Local schools were placed on lock-down just in case and the area close to the suspect's home was blocked off. Neighbors were advised to remain in their homes until the incident was resolved. A police robot was sent in to the home to survey the situation and the man allegedly fired many shots at it while continuing to refuse to follow officers' instructions. At around 11:45 a.m. officers deployed flash-bang devices and sent in a police K9. The dog was able to subdue the man and police were able to take him into custody without further incident. Make sure you have the help of a skilled criminal defense attorney if you have been accused of a crime or arrested.
Know Your Rights if You have Been Charged with a Crime
It is crucial that you know your rights when it comes to being questioned by police or accused of a crime. Your person and your property cannot be searched by authorities unless they have probable cause or a warrant. Additionally, if you are arrested then you are not required to speak a single word and should not do so without your attorney present. Since you have the right to a lawyer you should get experienced legal help on your side immediately. These rights are important for ensuring that you are not unjustly charged with an offense.
