    If you are underage can you be arrested for being at a party with under-age drinking, even if you really didn't drink anything and didn't buy the alcohol?

    You would not be arrested in Texas unless you had a drink in your hand or furnished it to minors or were responsible for the property where this was going on.

        In Wisconsin you couldn't be arrested unless you had consumed some alcohol.

          ***NOT LEO***

          Not LEO, but I feel kinda qualified to answer. I work campus security, and we deal with this all the time. My campus goes across two jurisdictions; one is major city (Philly) and they simply don't care about this issue. Frankly, unless someone has been stabbed, shot, etc., they've got bigger fish to fry; they'll tell you to break up the party and go home, but won't arrest unless you're REALLY being an oboxious #$%$. Other jurisdiction is a smaller suburb, but also one of the richest in the country; their constituents make sure the police don't take crap from nobody. When they break up a party, they'll bring out a portable breathalyzer test (PBT) and check EVERYone present. I have seen them bring it out when responding to the most minor disturbance. They will cite our students for posession on sight, when blowing the right #, and/or just by appearance, etc. usual for public drunkeness.

          Guess where our kids go to drink?

          Short answer: it depends...

                We charge the non drinkers all the time with possession because whether they are drinking or not they are allowing a crime to occur in their presence and basically encouraging others to drink.

                I also find it amazing how many of the non drinkers "just got there" or were "just picking up a friend" before the police arrived.

                    probably not, but they might take everyone's name who is underage and contact parents. it is CYA, because even if you didn't drink any alcohol, the local police will like to tell parents what went on so as to prevent future parties. Also when parents come down and complain that they weren't notified that we spoke to their 15 or 16 yo.

                          K, thanks for the info everyone.
                          Perhaps I'm just bad at sorting out info, but it sounds like a maybe-maybe not thing?

                              From EMT's signature line:

                              "Better the be judged by 12, THEN carried by 6"

                              Don't you mean "THAN"?

                              Then implies a subsequent action, therefore judged by 12, then carried by 6 would mean convicted and executed.

                              Than means in opposition to or instead of.

                              Just a question.
