I don't want to get into too much detail. My boyfriend and I recently had an encounter with two cops, who let us off with a verbal warning. Does this mean that they won't notify our parents of the situation or is that still a possibillity?
There is nothing about a verbal warning that precludes contacting your parents. Hopefully the police officers have more important things to do.
