Hopefully, nothing happens. The police have discretion to let you off with a warning, and it sounds like that is what happened.

You still have to fix the tail light even if you did not get a ticket.

I hope this information is helpful.

okay my question was can i legal get into trouble for now for the possesions of alcohol and weed if there were no tickets given and no one was put in jail? and we got to go home.
Expert:  N Cal Attorney replied 6 years ago.
If you were going to be charged for this you would almost certainly have been handed a citation on the spot. Can you please describe what happened in a little more detail? Also, was the alcohol and weed confiscated?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
okay. the weed and alcohol were taken.. and there was very little weed.. they questioned us, took or name and number and made one girl blow to see if she was sober to drive and we drove home.. being only 19 i had no priors on my record... also they searched the car for anything else.

Thank you for accepting my answer.

Did they ask for consent to search the car?
