My son was stopped for his tail light being out and they found a small amount of marijuana in his car (less than 2 grams). They did NOT give him a citation and he did NOT sign anything and they returned his drivers licenses... When they let him go they told him to contact the police about being a CI and the "case" would just go pending for two years while he served as a CI. They did take his marijuana. When he met with the police department they told him he was too young to be a CI and they would issue a warrant for his arrest in the next couple of weeks. My son just turned 17. We live in Texas. He was stopped in Celina, Texas (Collin County).
Thanks- Worried Mom
