Charlotte, NC asked in DUI / DWI for North Carolina

Q: MIC laws in North Carolina

My friend and me were at a concert and were given a MIC. Two of us were NOT asked to blow. Two of my others were told to blow, and they did. We were not explained ANYTHING and we are not from North Carolina we don’t know how anything works in NC. We are from SC. AND I’am a half of week from being 21.. They mentioned something about taking the classes. One of my friends that said she had been drinking they didn’t even give her anything. Honestly the whole thing didn’t make any sense and was a hot mess.

A: GREAT QUESTION

By “MIC” one would assume the inquiring is referencing an Underage Possession of Alcohol charge. In Charlotte, we have different legal options. It makes sense to speak with an experienced Mecklenburg County Criminal Defense Attorney.
