A number of years ago, my wife, our two young children and I were coming back from the Colorado River in a Class C pulling a Sea Ray. Shortly after going through an inspection point, we were pulled over. I was told that it had been noticed that I had a Red Solo Cup in the driver's cup holder. Upon inspection, it was learned that I was consuming a Pepsi over ice. I was asked to get out of the vehicle. (I should point out that I know a lot of law enforcement types, and go out of my way to be cooperative.) Both my boat trailer and the RV were visually inspected for problems (both were relatively new and obviously well taken care of). Not only was I asked to provide registration, proof of insurance, etc., but the officer checked to be sure all the turn signals & brake lights worked. No problems were found. While I was asked a couple of times about the Red Solo Cup, I was not asked about, nor were either the refrigerator in the RV or the ice chest in the boat, asked about or inspected. (Both had ice cold beer in them!) It was in the middle of the day, on a weekday, during Easter break. The officer seemed disappointed that he couldn't find anything. My suspicion is that had it been permissible, he would have checked the refrigerator and ice chest.

Thanks for this - I suspect the enforcement officer was perhaps ticked off because he was working on a holiday and would miss the Easter Bunny!

I've never heard of it happening, but I suppose if the cop wanted to be a real pain he/she could cite you and make you dump it. Probably remote though.

I can say that if a cop made me empty all open wine and every open liquor bottle in my cabinet, upset wouldn't begin to cover it. I would take it up with a judge.

Why would you even let a cop in without a warrant?? He has no business in your abode during a traffic stop, period.

Most states consider the "Living quarters" to be "house" so I have not heard of anyone getting "Busted" for an open bottle in fridge or pantry.

I assume it is possible, and I do know of some cops who, shall we say do not know the law nearly as well as they should, (I have been threatened with tickets for things that are 100% legal as an example) but when I got a ticket for, as an example, disregarding a traffic control device that did not exist,,,, The judge dismissed it.
