Never trust the police, they act like your best friend just to try and screw you. Make sure you get legal advise, to make sure both you and your brother can't end up with a charge, if he admits responsibility.

will say this just like i tell my college age employees that end up getting fired, and others that hae posted about car issues that "they didnt do".

your car, your responsibility. if you are driving and your brother is drinking a beer you get driving with an open container, and if you do not give a breathalyzer or fail feild sobriety due to being nervous, you can get dui too. even though you didnt drink.

word to wise is , screw your druggy and drunk friends and family unless you are 100% sure they will take the fall if you ever get caught in a pickle.

good luck, and if your brother doesnt take the rightful blame, disown him, never help him again.

Agreed. Every judge is different but at the end of the day the bowl was in YOUR possession. Really does suck how it got there but I don't think they're going to allow your bro to take the charge. I've never heard of that happening on my life. If you don't have a lawyer get one ASAP. They didn't take you to jail OP?

I may be wrong but don't think cops have to show up like they do in traffic.
Criminal/traffic are different beasts.
This will have a police report and all that jazz so doubt they will/have to show up.

First I have to say laws surrounding marijuana need to change. Second, if the cop had a dash cam and he was going in the opposite direction, I would think you would be able to prove in court with the dash cam video recording that he had no legal basis for pulling your car over. I would hire a lawyer and see if you can get off on a technicality. The cops unprofessional verbal response when he pulled you over, could also work in your favor.

If it's a chance to clear this off your record, I would definitely try. As for your brother, I would definitely be pissed. From now on, tell him to keep his crap out of your car or he can find someone else to drive him places. Good Luck to you.

Yep i can tell from your posts you have some knowledge in this bs. They DON'T have to show up for court.. I know first hand. Not trying to be a bummer just sharing my experiences.

Two days ago I was pulled over for going 142 in a 110 zone (88 mph in 70 mph). I just had the snow tires taken off and hit the remote part of the divided four-lane highway to check the balance on the new rims and tires for any vibration.

Yes, I was speeding. No, I have no excuse.

I have an "And the Sea Shall Give Up It's Dead" bumper-sticker...yes, a quote from Revelation, but in reality a promotional sticker from my favourite Surf Shop in Tofino on the remote West Coast of Vancouver Island in Canada. (Great cold-weather surfing for those into that sort of thing.)

The cop stopped and read the bumper sticker, came up to the window and said "you're going a little faster than we like on this stretch of road...even if you are late for church. Take care now and slow down."

I was five minutes down the road before it even dawned on me what he was referring to.

Essentially, not all police stops are life threatening and life changing.

ps: The car had at minimum two items that would have - at least - required mandatory court appearances in plain view on the back seat.

If the officer doesn't show up it usually gets thrown out.

ETA- in traffic court, in Indiana.

My buddy got basically the same thing when I was a kid in the late 90s early 2000s, when he went to court he got a $300 fine.

That was it.

Just pay them their money, that is what its really all about.

Anything in your car is considered your possession, be it a pipe, a gun, a dead body - and cops hear every excuse possible in those situations.

Falsely accused by arrogant people who are in a position of authority over you and who feel entitled to be condescending destructive liars with no regard for the other person. Yep. Been there. There is a special place in hell for people like that. They can be found anywhere that there is a pyramid of power ... cops, teachers, coworkers, charities, churches, places where people volunteer, etc. They are unapologetic and their sense of superior entitlement disgust me. What can be done about them? Sadly .. I can't think of a darn thing. (The ones in Churches are the worst. They throw god and supposed moral superiority into the mix).

They have scheduled court days for both and the likelihood of them not showing up is very small.

When someone snaps and takes it upon themselves to shoot/attack/kill cops, I often wonder if #*%¥tard goose stepping morons that you encountered think to themselves "it's because of w..kers like me that s..t like this happens".

Why would you possible think that the cops would believe that the pipe wasn't yours? That is the classic response of any perp?

There is one thing that you are guilty of, but I can't use the word on ATS as it might hurt your feelings.

Sorry, but if you own a vehicle, you are responsible for everything that is inside of it if/when you're pulled over.

As for the plate light...he easily could have noticed it in his mirror after you drove past, or not noticed it all until he turned around to follow you. An LEO doesn't need a reason to turn around and follow a vehicle--hell, maybe your vehicle was similar to a stolen car, so he wanted to run the plates. You never know.

I can say all of this because something similar happened to me in high school. I got pulled over for a taillight that was out, and one of my dumbass friends had left a joint sitting on my back seat after I dropped him off. Well, of course I get busted for that, and there was really nothing that I could do because it was inside my car.

It's very easy to forget that we are responsible for everything that is inside of our vehicle--to include passengers who are not wearing a seatbelt (depending on the state)--and that it is in our best interest to ensure there's nothing left in there that is illegal.

I work on federal property, and there have been times that I've accidentally left my firearm in my vehicle while on the premises. If my vehicle were to get searched (and they can be at any time), I'd be screwed, even though it's perfectly legal in KY to have a loaded firearm in a factory compartment, even if you don't have a CCDW permit.

All I can say is that life sometimes sucks--hopefully your brother steps up and does the right thing in this situation.

As was said before the police officer has to show up at traffic court because basically it is your word against his.In this case , there is evidence of criminal activity (gee I hate that in case of MJ possession) .Therefore , the police officer does not have to show up. Get an attorney . It is possible that your brother could sign a sworn statement that he was at fault .

Ummm...he wasn't falsely accused of anything. It's his car, meaning anything inside of it is in his possession, especially if he is the only one in the vehicle at the time.

I get your disdain for authority, but let's not throw it around when it's unnecessary. If the cop truly were an ass, he could have simply arrested him and taken him to jail. It sounds as if this encounter was actually pretty benign.

If someone has drugs, don't let them in your car.

Your car, your drug charge by default unless someone else takes the rap. People get so used to smoking dope as a norm, they forget that, oops, it's illegal. It's not a high priority bust though, and a stop at Dunkin Donuts may seem better than hauling your ass in if you luck out. Police have been known to dump the weed on the ground with the other weeds. Stay cool and polite when you get stopped.
