If you have been pulled over for drunk driving and you park in a public parking spot are cops allowed to tow you vehicle?
Last night my friend was arrested for drunk driving he passed the field sobriety test but he blew a .09 on their machine. When we were pulled over we parked in a public parking spot in a tom thumb parking lot. The offence on why they said they pulled us over occurred in a public parking lot. As well, just soon as we turned on to the street out of the lot, they pulled us over. Now, as the cop question my friend and he did the tests and he blew a .09 he is in jail right now but the cops told us that they had to tow his jeep and that even his wife with a baby could not drive their vehicle home. So, I am wondering since it was parked in a public parking spot are they allowed tow the vehicle and not let his wife drive it home, even though his wife met us up there to show proof of insurance?
