From wiki

Punishments for MIP's vary greatly from state-to-state. Since alcohol enforcement (and the establishment of drinking ages) are the responsibility of the individual states, only local and state agencies can legally write a MIP citation. As such, each state levies its own fines and punishments for a MIP.

In some states, a simple first-time MIP without any other circumstances (such as driving or public intoxication) may only involve a fine of $100-500. Often fines are reduced or eliminated provided the person convicted completes a program such as alcohol education, probation, or community service. In some states, a fine is eliminated, supplemented or accompanied with a loss of the accused driver's license for a period of time ranging from 30 days to 12 months. For example, violation of California's Business & Professions Code Section 25662, regarding persons under 21 in possession of alcohol, carries a punishment of $250 and a mandatory revocation of driving privileges for one year in accordance with Vehicle Code Section 13202.5.


Subsequent offenses or a person with a preexisting criminal record may frequently receive a full fine, or in some extreme cases, several days in jail. In many cases a third MIP may result in a loss of the accused driver's license until the age of 21.

Hmm...well, being from Michigan and having a clean record, you might just get a fine.

I've known of a few people who have gotten off pretty easily for MIPs. Then again, I've heard of a few who've gotten the shaft.

I'll assume I have an idea of what will happen since you're a fellow Michigander. From what I've been told by people who have received MIP's (one of whom got 3) you're likely to only get a fine and community service.

Did you spend a night in jail? From what I recall they don't usually put you in jail unless it's just to put you in the drunk tank to sober up, but I could be wrong since I've never been in that kind of trouble.

No the cop just wrote me and a few other people tickets and left after catching my buddy who ran off into the woods (some neighbors had him at gunpoint)

here's an idea...don't do it or don't get caught? if you can't keep responsible enough not to get caught when under the influence, then you shouldn't be using.

Minor In Possession, charged as an adult. Gotta love it. So which are you, a minor or an adult?

Well if you can't understand the law... don't break it.


Sorry but your planet is in the way of our hyperdrive highway. We must destroy your planet.

... WTF no you cannot blow up my planet, I live here!

Well the plans have been on display for years now, sorry.


- The law is just there for people who understand it to get in front of people who don't. Not saying that law is unnecessary, but complex laws are.

All that they could have done is say this: If you are under X age, and you are caught with X amount of liquor or you are intoxicated X amount, then you get X fine.

Simple laws and regulations are what we need, not all this lawyer porno.

Hah, lawyer porno, I like that term a lot.

This. In other words, don't be an idiot. I don't care that you do it, but if you get caught, you did something wrong.

Not always true. Sometimes you just have bad luck. Some friends of mine nearly got busted because some kid they had pissed off a few weeks earlier threatened to call the cops when he found out they were drinking.

Bad luck does occur, but like that guy I mentioned earlier (who got 3 MIP's in his first year of college) just aren't smart.
