My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
Well last night i got a ticket for Open intox in a motor vehicle , heres the situation. I was at a house drinking (I am over 21) , i was still intoxicated when it was time to leave , so i went to my car which was parked on the side of the road in front of the house. I sat in my car waiting to sober up before the ride home. The police pull up and ask what im doing , i tell them and the give me an open intox. My question is , is what can i do and is this right? My keys were NOT in the ignition , they were on my passanger floor board, car was not started for many hours.
Can someone please help me with this? Thanks
