Open container police looked through purse

Hi, quickly, my friend parked in the unloading only lane at the airport, picking me up. When she returned there were two cops. They tested whether she was sober, which she was, and talked about the open beer cans in her car, which she was bringing to the recycle center -- there were more than a dozen wrapped in a bag. Finally, they looked through her purse while she was still inside. Are they allowed to go through a purse? Is that considered private property, which you need her consent to look in her purse? any help would be appreciated.
