Hi my name is Harrison and I’m a commercial driver out of Tennessee. got pulled over the other night during an overnight delivery and while I was talking with the officer he said he smelled booze on my breath, told me to got out of the car and started searching it before I could protest much. I had had one beer with dinner so i don’t know what he was talking about but I DEFINITELY said no you don’t have permission to do that, my company even has that protection for me too. ended up getting glove compartment open and he found a small bottle of vodka which I admit was open but barely had been drank out of . Now i have a ticket for having an open container but thankfuly no Dui or anything. I know I’m in the wrong here but do I have any defense since h didn’t have permission?
Office searched my car even though I said no at DUI stop
