Q. Hi! I'm wondering what the consequences are for a minor caught driving with an open bottle of alcohol in the car.


Dear Juneau Resident,

They can be cited for the same crime as a minor consuming alchol if the minor is in possession of the alcohol. Here is how the law reads:

Sec. 04.16.050. Possession, control, or consumption by persons under the age of 21.
(a) A person under the age of 21 years may not knowingly consume, possess, or control alcoholic beverages except those furnished persons under AS 04.16.051(b).
