You were silly enough to believe a cop who says he won't arrest you. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha You think police reports are always truthful. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha What you should have done was refuse to answer his question and when he told you that he was going to search the car you should have said, "I do not consent to the search." They probably would have searched the vehicle anyway. But if you had a passenger in the front seat, they probably could not have pinned the stuff on you and even if you were arrested you probably would have been released eventually.

If you don't have a lawyer, get one immediately. Also text me at 415-336-7534 with your name and address and I will send you a business card with instructions on the back for what to do if the police stop you.
