Is this an unlawful arrest? And what are the penalties to possession of alcohol by someone older than 18 but under 21?
My girlfriend and a friend were stopped by police and caught with possession of alcohol by a minor. They are over 18 but under 21. The police were about to arrest them and began to read her miranda rights. A friend of hers interrupted and they stopped. Then the police told the two girls to get in the squad car then took them to the police station. They were not booked, but instead were issued a summons. The whole experience took about an hour. Is this considered an arrest because they were deprived the liberty to leave, and were detained for an hour? Also what is the sentencing for possession of alcohol by a minor over 18 but under 21 outside of a motor vehicle. They also had fake id's but were not charged with them, but were not charged. Can they be charged if they fight the possession?

Do the cops NOT pursue DUI CHARGES it it's a minor accident?(Only driver was hurt)
The person was passed out drunk and smelled like alcohol when the police arrived. The person was sent in the ambulance to ER.
