What is my defense against an underage drinking citation? 2 Answers as of December 14, 2011

The cops arrested me while walking on the sidewalk and realized I had been drinking because my friend had me in a head lock just joking around. I was taken to police station and given a breathalyzer and then given a citation of underage drinking. I am pleading not guilty.

Your word against the officer's won't work. An attorney may be able to negotiate a favorable plea.

From what I read, you have no defense since you were intoxicated. However, if you retain good counsel, then you can get your charge dismissed so that it does not potentially hurt you when you go to apply for employment, graduate school, etc.
