J.Hazelbaker :

Anyone arrested in any U.S. state must be mirandized upon arrest, even for DUI.

J.Hazelbaker :

If you are not mirandized, any statement or evidence taken after the point of arrest can be suppressed through a motion to suppress.

JACUSTOMER-ykki9t4k- : How do I prove I wasn't mirandized? I know for certain that I wasn't, but my friend told me they will say they did and say I was past the point of intoxication and just don't, how do I prove I wasn't
J.Hazelbaker :

You need to request the in-car video from the arrest as well as the police report. The are supposed to document the stop, arrest, and interaction in video/audio and with a written statement, to the extent possible. That is the only way you can prove it other than witness testimony (assuming the officer will not tell the truth on the stand when asked).
