Can I be charged with an MIP without a ticket or citation?
I was at a small party, with maybe 15 people. I drank a beer, and just took a few sips out of a second when the cops show up. Some people ran and tried to hide, but I sat down in their clear view and stayed calm. I was respectful and honest the entire time. All he took down was my name and birthday, and he asked if I was 21, my response was no. The follow up question, was if I had been drinking, and I said yes. After a while, everyone felt natures call, and the officer was patting people down before they could use the restroom, but when I went he said "Hey bud, you haven't given me a reason not to trust you. Some of those other guys have been trying to flush stuff down the toilet. As long as you don't have anything on you, you're good." A few hours go by, and he starts to breathalyze everyone. When I go up I tell him that I had full intentions of spending the night at the house, and showed that my car keys weren't on me. The officer had me go sit back down, and he tested everyone else. I did take the breathalyzer at the very end, but he never told me what I blew. He asked if I was spending the night, or calling a ride. But right after he said that, he pointed to my friend, and said "he's 0.00 if you want he can drive your car for you.". When everything was said and done, one person was arrested, but no tickets or citations were issued. The highest ranking officer said some of us should expect letters from the prosecuter. Will I recieve a letter, and/or an MIP?

Something fishy about this Field Sobriety procedure. ??
An officer had me do several field sobriety tests (fst). Nystagmus test, walk and pivot and one legged stand. All seemed to go well. He then had me blow in the breathalyzer. His partner motioned to see the result. The officer refused stating “I got this”. As though he wasn’t satisfied he had me do another test that I’ve never heard of. He had me stand with my feet together, arms down at my side with my head tilted back, eyes closed. Then told me to count from 30 backwards. I did this. As I completed my counting, 3, 2, 1, 0. The officer then finished his counting out loud… 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0. He then immediately grabbed my arms behind me and cuffed me stating "your under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs." Is this for real? I've never heard of it.
The officer gave you what is called The Rhomberg Test; however, it is really a modified Rhomberg for DWI purposes....
