Is an open container enough evidence to convict a DUI
I recently crashed my car, I'm not sure if I fell asleep but I was knocked unconscious. When I woke up , I was surrounded by paramedics who took me to the hospital. The hospital held me for 6 hours then realeased me. At no point did a police officer talk to me , so there was no failed sobriety or b.a.c. Test given. Also I was not read my Miranda rights.
