Arrested for Sleeping It Off in a Car in Michigan
Answer: Oh, absolutely. You can be arrested on very little sometimes, because they're trying to get people off the streets. So the question of public safety is sometimes to err on the side of caution rather than on the side of whether the person was actually operating the motor vehicle while they were intoxicated. So, if someone is sleeping it off in the car, there are certain factors that are worse or better, depending on how the facts are. Is the car running? Where is the vehicle? Is it in a lane of traffic or is it off to the side of the road? Those are all factors that we can fight, but unfortunately you can absolutely get arrested for sleeping it off in the vehicle. I haven't' seen anybody in a trunk before—that may actually be the safest place to be to have an argument that you weren't operating the vehicle.
