Typically, while traveling, you are not expecting to be arrested. Unfortunately, an arrest can occur if a law is allegedly broken in another state while you are there.

Out-Of-State DUI Cases
If you are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, it is essential to enlist a lawyer, as your driver’s license in your home state may be in jeopardy. Driver’s license suspension is just one of the consequences of driving under the influence (DUI), along with monetary fines and potential jail time. Drivers who hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) are especially at risk, since that license is the key to their livelihood.
DUI cases may be handled according to the laws in your home state, even if you were arrested and charged in Maryland. This is due to the fact that the state is a member of the Driver License Compact, which is an agreement between 45 states to share driving records and traffic violation information, as well as treat the cases as though they were committed in the home state.
Bringing A Firearm Into Maryland
While it is not illegal to bring a gun into Maryland from another state, there are numerous regulations in place that dictate how the firearm is to be stored, where in the vehicle it should be placed, where the ammunition is kept and more.
If you are pulled over and a gun is discovered, and you are not in compliance with Maryland firearm regulations, you may be charged with transporting a weapon. If a gun is in your glovebox and that is permittable in your home state, it is a crime in Maryland. Also, conceal and carry permits from another state are invalid in Maryland, and you can be arrested for violating firearms laws.
