Friend of mine picked me up from work, on the way to my house we got stopped and my friends car was searched. They found his backpack with marijuana in it. and next to the bag was an unopened bottle of alcohol. I told the officers that it was indeed my friends and i take no ownership to anything in the vehicle. I received a paper, at the time i did not know it was a summons to court. The officer claimed i said the bottle was mine. He charged me with possession of an unopened bottle that i told him time and again wasn't mine, can they do this?
