Will an open container violation be considered a violation of informal probation? How? 2 Answers as of April 17, 2015

I am on 2 years probation for a DUI that I was arrested for when I was pulled over by a campus police officer for running a red light and blew a .10. Last week an officer cited me for having an open container in front of several fraternity houses. Is an open container citation a violation of informal probation?

It depends on the terms of your probation it probably, yes.

Yes it is, which is why you should hire a lawyer and get this relatively minor charge dismissed. By yourself you're going to get a criminal record, and it isn't worth it.
