Can I fight this underage consumption charge?
I was at a concert near OU April 18th. I was just about to leave when my friend and I were stopped by two undercover cops with ODPS Investigative Unit. They asked if we were 21 and I said no. They immediately placed me under arrest and took me to a tent where they started filling out summons paperwork. Not until halfway through the paperwork did they give me any test to see if I was drunk. They had me follow a pen with my eyes and the guy did it very quickly and did not seem to care as he was already halfway through the paperwork. The "evidence" was that I had bloodshot watery eyes, 6/6 HGN, slurred speech, and staggering. I know for a fact my speech was not slurred because I was not very intoxicated, also it was in a muddy field, you could barely walk carefully anyway. Can I beat this??
