What are the consequences of getting my fake id confiscated? Will I get a misdemeanor or a felony charge?
Last night I went to Morgans Pier and used a fake id to try and get in. Morgans Pier is a beer garden. Unfortunately, I got my fake confiscated. The bouncer used a flashlight to read my id (it was 10pm) and said "out" then didn't give my id back. Am I in huge trouble for this? Will the bouncer hand it over to the police and will I get charged for this? I already have a citation on my record for underage drinking from a little over a year ago but I plead not guilty and just got community service and alcohol classes. I'm not sure if this is still on my record but it happened right after I turned 18 and I did not get it expunged. Not sure if this will influence anything.
I really doubt the bouncer called the cops. They could, but it's not likely. You've already got two alcohol related...

The MVD will find out generally the court will not.
How will a California interlock device restriction affect my ability to get a driver's license in Pennsylvania?
I was convicted of a first time DUI in Los Angeles county four year ago (June 2011). I completed all terms of my conviction except for the interlock device restriction, because I did not own a car, so was exempted. I am now living in Pennsylvania and would like to apply for a driver's license, but when I obtained my CA Driver History report, the interlock device restriction is still present. Therefore, I assume that if I apply for a license in PA, it won't be granted. My main question is: how do I fulfill my CA IID restriction while living out of state? Can I have the device installed here in PA and then submit proof to CA, or must I own the car in California? Any advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know with certainty about California but I have seen this situation with states closer to PA. They were able to...
Will they check for other substances besides alcohol in a BAC test?
I was arrested for DUI after I failed the Breathalyzer test and agreed to the blood BAC test. Will they automatically look for other substances in the blood or just the alcohol content?
Yes. They will look for prescription drugs and illegal drugs.
