Okay, so I have the occasional party at my apartment. I'm usually really respectful about my neighbors and I try my best to keep the noise down. I have never in my life had the cops called on me until last night! I was mildly intoxicated, all the people not 21 ran into my bedroom haha, but I just want to know what to and what not to say! I was really nice to the cops, complied, they just explained to me what the situation was, I thanked them, and they left. Regardless, some guy at my place was saying that you don't let them into your home, he said something like "if they ask, ask them if you're legally obligated to and when they say no, respectfull decline." Is that true? Also, if they ask you to step outside, will they arrest you for being drunk in public? I hope this is in the right section also, I'm brand new here! Thanks in advance for all the advice too! Also, I live in california if that makes any difference.
