Isn't that the best when a cop pulls you assuming you been drinking then your sober as a judge and he looks all let down that he pulled over an innocent driver! Happend to me about three months ago. Had three people with me and all three were sloshed and two had open beers (In NC as long as the driver has not had anything passengers can have beer in the car). Cop says you been drinking son? I said no sir not since 2003. He said oh Mr. Smart ass lets just see what the breathalizer says, okay I say. When it came back 0.0 I asked him why he had pulled me over. He said well your passengers have open containers. So I pull up the DMV website on my phone and show him this:
"If the driver has not consumed any alcohol, an open container of a malt beverage (beer, malt liquor, ale, hard lemonade) or unfortified wine (table wine, champagne) is not prohibited."
Dude did not like that I trumped him on the law. Got very snippy and told me I was lucky! I snapped a pic of his badge with the # and that night sent an email to the police department general box and 5 other higher up officers listed. Monday morning I got an email from all 5 apologizing for the officers behavior.
all those piggies were pissed. good things they didn't have a test for(kiddies don't do this) hallucinogenics. I guess he could have put on some Phil Manzanera on and see my response.
