Call for advise

I would call for the patrol supervisor or a senior officer.

It would be best to distance yourself from the situation if at all possible.

Just my thoughts.

Another thing to keep in mind, not everything is black and white there are always gray areas in every situation. They will also be looking at your level of discretion.

"There's no supervisor on tonight, and you're the senior man. What are you gonna do now?"

"You're the only officer on shift, so you have to make the call."
Lock em up! If you absolutely have to. Officer discretion is a big part of the job but sometimes your discretion is limited. Shit happens, they go to court pay the fine etc... whatever at least you still have a job to support your family, if you loose your job because you went by the book I guess you could have an interesting lawsuit.
