How Are Minors Dealt With In Regards To Public Intoxication Or Open Container Charges?
Minors can be arrested, just like anyone else. A minor having any amount of alcohol is a class A misdemeanor. If you are driving in Illinois, even if you are not over the legal limit, they will give you a minor consumption ticket and they can immediately suspend your license. It is called Zero Tolerance. Once that ticket is on your record, your insurance is going to go up and you are going to be considered a high risk for the next 10 years.
