Steven R. Adams: Happy St. Paddy’s day my Ohio and Kentucky not guilty fans. Yes, it’s St. Paddy’s day. There are Irish drinkers. There are non-Irish drinkers hanging out at Irish pubs all over greater Cincinnati, including here in Filibuster’s. Not Guilty Adams’ Irish pub.

First and foremost, you need to be responsible on St. Paddy’s day. Take Uber. Take a Lyft. Don’t drink and drive, but if you believe that you can drink responsibly and then drive responsibly, you need to pay attention to this video.

When we’re all merry and cheery on St. Patrick’s day, the po-po aren’t. Why? Because they have to work on a great holiday!

They’re not happy. They’re angry, so they want to ruin your fun-loving St. Paddy’s day. If the lurking and sneaky po-po pull you over on St. Paddy’s day, approach your window and start asking you questions like whether or not you have been drinking, are you going to answer those questions?

Audience: No.

Steven R. Adams: Instead, you’re gonna say, “Officer, before I say or do anything, I want to talk to Steve Adams.”

They’re going to ask you to get out of your car, exit your vehicle. What do you do? You do get out of the car, let me repeat that. It’s important, you do get out of the car—you do not wanna get charged with obstructing official business. When you get out of the car, the po-po, they’re gonna ask you to do these goofy roadside field sobriety tests—also known as unreliable roadside gymnastics. Are you gonna do them?

Audience: No.

Steven R. Adams: Instead, you’re gonna say, “Officer, before I say or do anything, I wanna talk to Steve Adams, Not Guilty Adams.” The po-po are going to take you in their po-po cruiser to the magical, mystical, po-po breath test machine. Are you going to blow into that machine?

Audience: No.

Steven R. Adams:  Instead, you’re gonna say, “Officer, before I say or do anything, I wanna talk to Steve Adams.” If the po-po suspects drugs, the po-po is gonna ask you to take a po-po pee-pee test or a blood test. Are you gonna take it?

Audience: No.

Steven R. Adams: If you refuse, you will get suspended by the DMV for refusing the chemical test, but there’s hope. Why? Because Not Guilty Adams and its trained experienced staff will file an appeal and fight that suspension. What happens if you do give the government evidence? If you do admit to drinking, if you do  the breath test, if you do the field sobriety test, how are you going to feel? What are you gonna say?

I am so sorry, to my world, I am so sorry to my world, this is not what we want.

So, to all my green, cheery, lovable, leprechauns out there on St. Paddy’s day, Irish or non-Irish, happy St. Paddy’s Day! And remember, if you’re stopped by the man, call the man. Steven R. Adams, notguiltyadams.com.
