What should I do if I’m the passenger in the car and we’re pulled over for DWI? What if as a passenger, I’ve also been drinking? Can they arrest me for public intoxication?

As a passenger, sit tight and remain quiet. An investigating officer may ask you how much the driver has had to drink. Snitching on the driver will not keep you from being arrested. Typically, an officer will allow the passenger to call for a ride home from the scene. Public Intoxication is if a citizen is in public and becomes a danger to himself/herself or others as a result of being intoxicated
