I was involved in a car crash. I have no memory of it most likely due to head trauma. I do not know how I ended up getting home. My father ended up finding me almost dead in my room. He called EMT's. After EMT's showed up a cop came as well. After I was brought back to life I remember very little of anything. I remember getting into an argument with the officer. Next thing I know I woke up in a jail cell. Once I got out I had found out the cop had smelled marijuana in my room, located it, and subsequently arrested me and brought me to jail. How could this have happened?
Officers routinely accompany ambulances for the safety of the paramedics. Therefore the officer was permitted to be in the room. There may be a search and seizure issue depending on the facts. You should consult with an attorney to begin your defense.
