I would fight it!!! You can't have an open bottle in a vehicle. What if the vehicle is in a garage? How about the fact he was in a parade and not going the posted limit? How about the fact he was a passenger and not the driver? Do they know for fact it had beer and not water or tea in it? How about the fact a parade route is a "closed route" and doesn't have the normal rules of the road when it is closed. And who really cares what he does in his own time? With all the BS going on all around us, why even persue something like this? And maybe he was just getting started early for St Paddy's Day!!! Me want cookie...

Well truth is..Texas DOES have an open container law. Years ago the cops had to Prove that they say you actually swallowing the beer (or other alcohol) before they could cite you with open container. Now, they have decided that having ANY alcohol in the vehicle that is within reach is considered illegal (even if it is still sealed). No, the fact that he was in a parade on a route did not exempt him from the laws...he was on a roadway. Parade or not...by law he was in the wrong. Also, before cops could arrest someone for PI behind the wheel...just finding someone "sitting" in a rested position behind the wheel of a vehicle and drinking (or having BEEN drinking) was probably cause for arrest...they did away with that law and now the officers have the burden of proof for a full list of things for a DWI
