My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA California
This is an interesting question. Can a person get arrested and charged for sleeping in their car while drunk?
Lets say your coming back from a party and find yourself too intoxicated to drive. You then place your keys in the glovebox and doze off in the back of your car. The car is locked, not on and parked legally off the roadway in a parking lot. Your intent is to sleep it off in the back until you are completely sober.
Can a police officer arrest that person for DUI? Can the person be convicted of DUI from this scenario?
This is an academic question and not an actual occurence. I have read a few threads on other internet forums and talked with a few people on this. Just curious to see what views are on this topic in this forum. Thanks
