The time you spend in jail is time wasted, because you cannot do anything productive to defend yourself from the inside of a jail cell. As soon as you are able to do so, post bond and get out of jail. The police will have gathered whatever evidence they feel is compelling for your trial; you need to be free to start working on your defense.
Even though you have already been read your Miranda Rights and do have the right to remain silent, you must provide information during the booking process when you are arrested such as your name, address and date of birth.
The first, and most important, thing you can do if you are being arrested or have been arrested for a DWI is to contact an attorney who has a great deal of experience in defending drivers against DWI charges. Your attorney will review the steps the officers took in detaining, testing and arresting you to see if your rights were violated, in which case, the evidence collected may be inadmissible.
While your implied consent in cooperating with blood, breath and alcohol testing is assumed by the state of New Hampshire, the state also assumes your implied consent in complying with the standard field sobriety tests that police officers have you perform in order to determine whether or not you are impaired by alcohol.
If you are arrested, you must do everything you can to protect your rights. Any attempt you make to explain the situation, and anything you do that can later become part of the testimony used to convict you, will only make your case more difficult to defend. The United States Constitution guarantees you the right to be free from self-incrimination. That is why, when the police officer arrests you, they tell you that you have the right to remain silent. Exercise that right!
