A few weeks ago, we wrote a blog post about the varying charges and penalties related to driving under the influence charges in the state of Rhode Island. In that post, we talked about the "zero tolerance" blood alcohol limit for those who are underage. That limit is 0.02 (much lower than the normal 0.08 limit), and it appears than a teenager in Rhode Island has committed this offense.
The 19-year-old was driving his car when the vehicle overturned. Police on the scene administered field sobriety tests, and the teenager was arrested for driving under the influence. He was soon released on bond, though he now has a serious legal situation on his hands.
