Morgan City, LA asked in DUI / DWI, Traffic Tickets and Car Accidents for Louisiana

Q: Is this even correct because it doesn't seem right?

I was given a careless operation ticket with alcohol and open container. I was not drinking that day. No breath test was given to me but the officers did make me do a few things like look into a light. During that test I allowed officers in my vehicle and they found a bottle in one of my bags. Something I never threw away. Also this all happened during an accident and only my car was damaged.

A: Hire a criminal attorney. You're also going to need it because you're going to be sued for injuries, if there was another driver.
