It's likely that Arizona DUI attorneys will be getting some calls this week after police officers in Tempe busted 86 individuals for underage drinking. Fox News reports that Tempe and Arizona State University police arrested 85 minors for possession of alcohol and one adult over the age of 21 who allegedly allowed the minors to gather and consume alcoholic beverages.
Most people are aware that it's illegal to consume or posess alcohol under the age of 21 in Arizona, however many people don't realize that there are serious consequences to such an offense. According to FindLaw, underage drinking can actually lead to a two-year driver's license suspension, even if the underage drinker was not operating a motor vehicle at the time of the arrest. For this reason, Arizona DUI attorneys often get involved with minor in posession cases as well.
