Me and some friends were in a parking lot at what amounts to a tailgate when we were approached by a police officer. We had beers in unmarked cups and were cooperative when the officer questioned us. Despite being a normal act in Worcester we were arrested and must appear in court. What are the ramifications of this action? Do we need lawyers? We were completely cooperative and were not disturbing the peace, or being disruptive in any way. None of us have prior arrests or even traffic tickets.
