Can a cop legally come in your house uninvited or without a search warrant if he suspects underage drinking?
My parents are out of town and i had a few friends over last night and we were sitting outside with the music on. we had all had just a couple of beers. a cop pulled up and we freaked out so we ran in the house. I came back outside immediately to talk to him. I asked him what he was here for and he didnt answer i opened the door to let my dog in and he grabbed the door and walked in. i asked for a search warrant and he said nothing. i told him he had to leave and he said he did not have to he heard beer bottles crash. He made us take breathalizer test, dump all the alcohol, and wrote us tickets. Can he legally come in my house without being asked or a search warrant if he suspects underage drinking?
