Question: I got a VC 23152 DUI charge in Van Nuys for having an open container but did not even have a sip? Is this right???

Answer: You can be charged with a DUI, but it doesn’t mean that you should, and should fight that charge. An open container charge would make more sense, but that doesn’t mean that is how it is going to play out. If he is charged with a DUI, or even if he is just charged with an open container, he should speak with a DUI attorney as both can have serious consequences. I can be reached at 818-336-1384 (818-336-1DUI) if you want to discuss the case in further detail.
