    DRIVING & ALCOHOL

    If you are under 21 years of age and are in possession of an alcoholic substance, you can be found guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor. If you are under 21 years of age, it is against the law to drive or be in physical control of a motor vehicle while there is any spirituous liquor in your body (A.R.S. § 4-244(34)).

    A person under 21 years old who asks someone else to purchase, sell or furnish them with alcohol is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of a maximum of 30 days in jail, a $500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-802) and suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(D))

    A person under 21 years old who uses false identification to buy or be furnished with alcohol is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of 6 months in jail and a $2,500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-707) including suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(C),(E))

    I think underage laws are fine. but when cops arrest people that are minding their own business and not hurting anyone. ( not driving ) maybe just walking around. That is the worst! All the cops do is make money for the counties. Underager dont learn anything from this. I know 3rd timer. If they want my money why do they just ask. say hey pay 100 buck and you can drink this year. think about it.
