Citation received of "Open Container", that's all it said.
The stop was routine. A misdemeanor violation was issued for "Open Container" (OC). A court appearance is required. No one seems to know why the stature is called "Open Container Law." Correct present , past, and past perfect English knowledge of all legislation is required.
The notice to appear was issued in to some else as the middle name is XXXXX XXXXX middle than mine. I found 50 people with that middle name in MD alone.
I was given breatlyizer test. The result was .04. Since up to .08 is allowed in Maryland I thought that was it. But the officer seemed pressured to give a ticket for something.
He eventually, although permission was denied, bullied his way into my SUV. He found a glass bottle of extremely expensive liquor, tightly sealed, but not full, mostly consumed consumed at a weekend stay with friends. He did not ask and had NO knowledge of when and how many different times alcohol consumption occurred.
It may be a common law issue, not statutory, you think? Unbelievable, but broken seal is the same as a bottle of brew in the drivers hand in Maryland.
It bothers me as the language misleads those who don't have time to fully read every statue.
