No one wants to get arrested and, face it, some people are just going to be in danger of arrest more than others. If you are stopped by a police officer, the advice of experienced professionals is to do anything you required to prevent it.
According to Dale Carson is a defense attorney in Jacksonville, Florida and author of the book, "Arrest Proof Yourself," you should cry, explain how it will adversely affect your relationship with your spouse, your boss, whatever. Throw your dignity out the window. The advice even extends to soiling yourself so they won't want to put you in their car.
Of course, you can get arrested in a private home, yours included. The chances of that happening, however, are quite slim. Unless you and your party are loud and obnoxious, police will probably not have any way to learn of your activities and profiling opportunities are nil.
In keeping with this theme, don't stand out in public. If an officer is looking to up his arrest statistics this week, he will normally be looking for easy pickings. Dressing or acting obnoxiously, while perhaps technically legal, will attract attention you don't want. Watch what kind of car you drive, how you dress, etc. The best advice is to be Clark Kent, not Superman.
If you are in the habit of just dumping your prescription drugs in a baggie and sticking it in your purse or pocket, you are asking for trouble. If you are stopped and the officer searches your person or car (to which you should never, ever submit to voluntarily), it is going to look like they were handed out by a street pharmacist.
Make sure, if you bring prescription drugs with you, that they are in the original containers with your name on the label and that you have valid ID with you. If you are getting in a friend's car, look for paraphernalia, loose pills or leftover bits of marijuana. If you find them, get out and find another ride. If pulled over, you are all in for a ride to the slammer before a judge (might) sort out the next day.
Pay All Violations, Tickets, Fines, Bad Checks Immediately
These are probably most people's quickest route to court and/or jail. Do whatever you need to do (legally) to pay them before your time is up. Never, no matter what, miss a court date. A warrant will be sworn, and executed, immediately.
Borrow from friends, relatives, a payday loan place, whatever. Ask for $5 or $10 from each. Do anything, but pay those tickets, etc. right away.
