Can a cop legally come in your house uninvited or without a search warrant if he suspects underage drinking?
My parents are out of town and i had a few friends over last night and we were sitting outside with the music on. we had all had just a couple of beers. a cop pulled up and we freaked out so we ran in the house. I came back outside immediately to talk to him. I asked him what he was here for and he didnt answer i opened the door to let my dog in and he grabbed the door and walked in. i asked for a search warrant and he said nothing. i told him he had to leave and he said he did not have to he heard beer bottles crash. He made us take breathalizer test, dump all the alcohol, and wrote us tickets. Can he legally come in my house without being asked or a search warrant if he suspects underage drinking?

How should i explain this violation to the state of IL?
This was the first violation i have ever had. I had used mouthwash before that and thought there was enough time but i guess not. It registered .052(the detail report showed 3 .052 readings at the exact same time, which i thought was wierd too, but only shows 1 violation on the letter.) Because i was needing to get to work though, i had my roomate go ahead and drive my car and me to work so that i would not be late and pick me up later.
You can explain this once - and probably only once, The mouthwash excuse is really common. Purchase alcohol free...

I did not provide the alcohol to my sister but I received the ticket because I was with her. What does this mean for my court supervision and my license?
While it is remotely possible, you probably will not have your supervision revoked. Nevertheless, you should hire...
