Can i get charged with underage drinking just by the smell of my breath?
Me and my friend were walking home around 12am it was my 18th birthday earlier that day and a cop stops us and asks if were 18 and we said yes and he asks for our id and im getting mine out to show him and my friend didnt have hers so she ran. But he told me he could smell alcohol on my breath? And he asked for the info of my friend and i gave it to him. But they are trying to charge me with underage. But how can they do that if i was allowed to be out at that time considering their is no curfew for 18 so he shouldn't have stopped me in the first place and he didnt even give me a breathalyzer test ? And their was no real probable cause we were just walking perfectly fine. Do you think He can still charge me ?

Arrested for first offense DUI. Will be admitted to ARD program. Will this have an effect on employment?
I was arrested a few weeks ago for suspicion of DUI. My lawyer is getting me into the ARD program, which he told me will not result in a DUI conviction on my criminal record (correct me if I am wrong). I was just given a job offer as a physical therapist assistant for a skilled nursing facility. Employment is pending upon a drug test and background check. I have no priors on my record whatsoever. I just tried to access my criminal background check and it is pending. If I haven't been convicted of a DUI, and likely should not, is this going to affect my opportunity for employment? Is it possible that my background check will come up as "no record" since I technically have not been convicted?

ARD? Probation? Monitorconnect?
I have to check in once a month for my probation for a DUI that's In ARD, and it's saying I already checked in, but I didn't and it's not letting me check in, so I called my probation officer and she looked me up and said its fine don't worry, this happens often.
