I was going to point out that yes, it's not necessary to ask for license and registration to give a "warning", and I've been pulled over to be given a warning without being asked for documentation, but nothing says that was the officer's original intent. Is a broken headlight not a ticketable offense? I was going to make the statement that the officer may have decided on the warning after stopping M-T because he's just such an all around cool frood who knows where his towel is. But then I realized who I'd be talking to and will opt instead to spend my time chatting up this sexy brick wall over here. I'm sure I just need to buy it one more round of drinks.
