My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ohio, California, Mass,
On one of those reality cop shows, this police officer was driving in their car when they spotted another car committing a traffic violation. The driver parked the car and began walking away. The officer stepped out of their car and instructed the driver to go back to the car and sit inside while the officer proceeded with their investigation. The traffic violation became a DUI when it turned the guy was drunk.
My question is that could the driver have refused with officer's request since they had already parked the car and were walking away? Could they have just said that it was not their car?
What would have been the consequences?
