It is not uncommon for those who are underage to be arrested for drunk driving. This is simply because if there is even a minimal amount of alcohol on their breath, they will be considered to be driving under the influence due to being under the legal drinking age. If their blood alcohol level is 0.02% or above, they are considered beyond the legal limit, which may lead to criminal charges.
