I was cited for underage drinking in my college dorm recently. I was in somebody's room when a spat led to some shouting and I left for fear that a fight could break out. I got to my room, put on headphones, and played VERY loud music. To the point where I could not here the RAs shouting and knocking on my door so they called the police. The officers entered and asked me the details of the situation and I was totally confused as I had my headphones on the entire time. I told them I wasn't drinking and refused a PBT. They handcuffed me and took me to the police station, where I was questioned without being read Miranda rights. I admitted to drinking while in police custody but since I was not read my Miranda rights could this be thrown out? Also, was I wrongfully put into custody?
