Can I get any of my charges dropped?
I was driving two drunk friends home and was charged with a zero tolerance dui, possession of marijuana, underage consumption, and unlicensed driver. I initially got pulled over because my license plate light was out. I told the officer I had not been drinking and I took a breathalyzer. I blew a .04 and the legal limit for a minor is .02 but I never said I had been drinking. Then the officer lied to me and told me that my friend said I had drank. She never told him I drank. My car got searched and the officer found marijuana in my trunk. and then my car impounded. Is there anything that I can do to get out of any of this? The officer didn't even record my BAC or the amount of marijuana that was found on the ticket he gave me.

Can police sit in a parking lot of a business, lights off, run radar and/or watch for patrons coming out of a bar?
Police have been sitting in a business parking lot with their lights off on their car a lot recently. They could be running radar or watching for patrons of a bar coming out to leave. Can they stop the vehicle just because the individual just left the bar? And can they run radar in the lot?
What would be the rationale that would prevent them form doing this?
