In Washington State it is illegal for a minor (someone under the age of 21) to be operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If you are stopped by the police and have a blood alcohol level of .02 or above you can be charged with underage DUI, which is classified as a misdemeanor offense.

It is therefore key that anyone under 21 who is facing such charges to contact a Lynnwood criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible after your arrest. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the following are just some of the behaviors the police are looking for that have shown time and again that a person has been drinking.

Behaviors include:

  • Weaving
  • Driving well below the speed limit
  • Stopping for no reason in the middle of traffic
  • Stepping on your brakes in an erratic manner
  • Tailgating
  • Having your headlights off
  • Having the appearance of being drunk and driving

What Happens When You Get a DUI Under The Age of 21?
