A charge for open container means that a person had a container of an intoxicating beverage open in the vehicle that they were in when stopped by an officer. An open container is usually an open can of beer, liquor or wine in the car when an officer stops a person for some other reason like speeding or a DUI. An open container is usually the secondary charge and not the primary charge in a case. A lawyer can usually negotiate a dismissal or low fine disposal of this charge during the negotiations with the prosecutor.
