My 16 year old daughter is being investigated for evading arrest

Resolved Question:

My 16 year old daughter is being investigated for evading arrest and is apparently having a warrant issued for her arrest. She and some friends ran when an officer approached them. Her car was impounded and searched and was found to have beer and a small pot pipe in the car. Should we contact an attorney before making contact with the officer to discuss thier intentions?
