    Open container laws apply in most states. You might not be DUI but you have an open container and he can ticket you for that.

    In my state, it would be a ticket for open intoxicants in a motor vehicle.

    Depends on where in the world you are, local laws, and if there is beer in the beer can.

    They are supposed to keep you under observation for a designated period of time. Then they can give you a breathalyzer test.

    Field sobriety tests can be done immediately or later, as the police see fit.

    If you're drinking in a vehicle, there are "open container" laws to consider.
