Good afternoon. If the officer was going to cite you for the open container, it would have been at that time. I highly doubt that they would first come back now and issue a citation and if they had an concerns with you drinking while driving or being impaired, they would have conducted a DUI/DWI investigation at the time, on the scene. Since no citation was issued, nothing would be on your record regarding this and if the other person was found to be at fault, it is not something that should count against you in any way.
