My son hit a pole and he had been drinking 1 car accident and when the ambulance came they took him to the hospital , the airbags deployed on both sides . The police searched his car found a few ounces of weed in the glove box along with a couple of beers in his back pack. The police followed gun to the hospital where they questioned him and he was pretty out of it due to the collision , however the police left and did not wait for him to be arrested . We are not sure what the charges are as we have not been notified yet. My son caught a cab home as neither one of us answered our phones because it was an unknown number as he had lost his cell phone. I believe the police had the hospital give them my sons records is that legal? It did come back as having alcohol but he was not high , he does not smoke it was not his weed but very stupidly he was carrying it. At what point do we detain a lawyer?
