I’m quite positive you read it here and I think it was @MikeBKY that may have put it forward or commented on it. somewhere in the conversation was the statement that often time police are not ALLOWED to make a statement for 72 hours. It is a viable tactic and one you should consider if you think you are being pressured to give a statement or make comment that you do not want to. The other answer is to state clearly that "I am invoking my fifth and sixth amendment rights at this time, I will be more than happy to cooperate further in the presence of my attorney. " Then SHUT UP.
One other thing to consider is that you will probably have a toxicology screen done if you have “non specific” symptoms . There are rules and then there are rules one set is medical rules and the other set is legal rules. Police cannot have the results just by asking for them but they can be subpoenaed if you are charged with a crime.
Coming from a medical background there are key words and tricky phrases that will illicit an immediate emergent medical response.
- It feels like there is an elephant on my chest (heart attack)
- I have this sudden headache (brain aneurysm)
- I cant see out of my right eye (stroke)
- My left arm is killing me (heart attack)
Going to the hospital may seem like a better alternative to going to jail but in reality it is just a delay tactic if you are making it up. That said if you are having a medical issue you have the people that can help you right there.
IMHO don’t play cards that you don’t need to.
