2nd Underage while on Probation.
My friends and I were walking down the sidewalk in Bowling Green Ohio. I had an orange solo cup in my hands and the next thing I know bike cops had surrounded us. They take our cups and quickly learn there was alcohol in them. I was given an underage possession and just yesterday I started Inactive Probation for my 2nd Underage which was dropped to a Minor Consumption (M4). My 1st Underage was dismissed. When I asked the officer why he stopped us he responded with, "I saw you guys had solo cups in your hands and to me that means there's alcohol in them." When asked if I had an ID I replied with no, so the officers handcuffed me. I was cited with Underage Possession and Open Container. Will I be going to jail?
I highly doubt that you would be going to jail. Generally, for an officer to stop you and ask questions, it would be...
Is it possible to have an underage consumption charge dropped based on insufficient evidence?
I have been cited for underage drinking/consumption. I am a 20 year old female with absolutely no criminal record. At the time of the incident I was in an establishment that does not serve alcohol nor was there any alcohol present in the establishment or posessed by myself. Based on the police report I obtained, the explanation of the officer's probable cause was due to two factors: I had "difficulty forming sentences due to intoxication level" and because prior to the officer's arrival I had vomited. However, there was no admission of guilt referenced in the report or citation (and no recollection of admission) nor was there any type of sobriety tests conducted. I was cooperative with the police, and they released me to my friend (age 20) to walk me back to her home.
You can request a suppression hearing and argue no probable cause to arrest. But the officer is going to cite odor of...

What is the consequence of an OVI first offense with no previous record of any crime?
No previous criminal record. Only a couple highway speeding tickets. At the time I was pulled over I wasn't previously drinking. I drank a small amount of listerine after taking Nyquil and some medicine for allergies. I did not eat all day and was on limited sleep. Right after doing this I drove to pick friends up from the club and blew the breathalyzer test and it gave me a false positive reading in which I was arrested but released shortly after.
A couple issues to consider before addressing your issue. How do you know it was a false positive reading. Listerine...
Can I get my underage citation removed, it's my first offense ever.
I am 19 and I was walking down the street, a friend gave me a bike so I got on and lost my balance and ended up going into the street in front of a car. The officer saw this and asked me to get in his car. I was not breathalyzed, had no alcohol on me and was not slurring my words; he never stated smelling alcohol of any kind. He simply gave me a ticket stating "underage under influence of alcoholic beverage" after looking at my school ID. This is my first offense ever. Is there any way I can enter a diversion program and get this off my record and not have my parents' insurance go up.
It is sometimes often possible for this charge to be reduced or the offender permitted to enter diversion, all subject...
