• Under Section 49.031 (Possession of Alcoholic Beverage in Motor Vehicle), the officer MUST issue a citation (Class C Misdemeanor) and the fine can be no more than $500. I've read that each jurisdiction has the power to set fine in their area, so you'd have to check the back of the ticket you got to see what the fine is or call the court number listed to find out.
