Absolutely not. And, do not say another word, to any law enforcement agents (which would include the police) without having your attorney present.

Are you reading the answers here? Absolutely not. The cops are not your friends. They are not going to just clear this up if you would only explain. They are trying to build a case against you. Do not talk to them without an attorney. If they ask why, then tell them it is your constitutional right and hang up the telephone or close the door.
