After a party over the weekend I was sitting outside my friend's house in the driver's seat of my car. I was well and truly drunk, but I was just sleeping and did not drive the car anywhere. I decided I couldn't do it after the party and didn't want to get an operating under the influence charged against me. About five in the morning a cop knocked on the window "to see if I was OK" and he could smell alcohol and asked me if I'd been driving. I told him no and that I was just sleeping. He said I should sleep somewhere else and that it's possible to be sitting in a car that is not moving and still be convicted of OUI in MA. Is that so? Thanks in advance.
