Can I be charged with a DUI/DWI?
I was driving home from a party. After dropping off my friends, I pulled into a parking area on the side of the parkway to respond to a text. Two undercover cops questioned me when I got back in the car and notice open and unopened beers in my car (which I tried to hide by holding my hand over the empty bottle (I was very nervous)). They told me that they had no interest in issuing me a DUI. They repeatedly asked if I had cocaine, meth, and heroin, which I did not. They searched my car, and I voluntarily emptied my pockets to show that I had nothing. I overheard one of them tell the other that I was not the guy. They clearly saw the beers and all they said after was don't drink and drive. They didn't run/check my license or even ask my name and age. It seemed to me that they may have been DEA agents and not NYPD. Can I still get charged with a DUI/DWI or an open container violation?
No you will not be arrested after the fact. No field test or breath tests were administered or refused.

Is there another way to resolve this from New York?
You should contact an attorney in the county in Ohio where the DWI occurred. Where I practice in New York it would be...
