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?

Can I sue the hospital for telling my child that they suspected I was drunk. This upset my son terribly.
My son was to be released from a mental hospital. I met with the doctor and he accused me of being intoxicated. I was detained until the police arrived in a small room. The doctor told my 16 year old son that he may not get released because I was intoxicated. This made him upset. The police arrived and I was given the all clear. In police report it states I didnt appear intoxicared or smell of alcohol.
While this incident may have been upsetting and offensive, I don't think you would be able to prove any damages.
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...

While it is remotely possible, you probably will not have your supervision revoked. Nevertheless, you should hire...
