What do you get for drinking while beeing underage. A night in prison or a fine ? Do your parents have to get you from the police station ?
Depends on where you are at in the US. In my college town, they basically made you stop, and wrote up a JR (which was basically a slap on the wrist, enough of them had real consequences, but occaisionally no big deal). I don't know of anywhere at least in my local area, where they haul you to prison for drinking underage, but localities may have such policies. I'm sure where I live now it's a fine if the police are involved, but most places if you get caught, they just kick you out.
