    Re: Underaged drinking gets ex-Colts QB in trouble

    My parents let my older brother have a kegger for his graduation. 200 underage drinkers later they realized they had made a mistake which was not good for me. If I had kids I would not supply the booze but I might conveniently leave town for a week around graduation.

    You can get charged for giving teenagers alcohol at a private closed party ???
    It's a misdemeanor, but yes. His biggest concern though, is the felony charge of obstructing justice.
    Well I guess I can understand that, I just didn't know the law were that way.

    I think the restrictions of serving alcohol to minors here - which btw is at age 18 - only apply to place with public alcohol licens.
    You aren't burdened by a litigious society like the USA.
    Also, you don't have as many cars.

    Think about it like this:


    * Cool Parent supplies alcohol to underage drinkers at his house.

    * Star QB gets hammered and ends up smashing through a plate-glass


    window at Cool Parent's home.

    * Star QB's family sues the living shit out of Cool Parent.

    Or:

    * Cool Parent supplies alcohol to underage drinkers at his house.

    * Four regular kids decide to hop into a car which is parked down the


    street (out of eyesight of Cool Parent) to go get some cigarettes.

    * Four regular kids get into a drunken-driving accident and die.

    * Cool Parent is charged with involuntary manslaughter for supplying


    the booze.

    Would either of those situations happen in Denmark?

    =Z=
    Sounds pretty unrealistic.
    Here - both of those situations (if you make the first one more generic and just say a kid hurts themselves at Cool Parent's house) have happened here many many many times.

    My next-door-neighbor's last kid had his Prom (a school-year-ending formal dance) last weekend and the son wanted to have a bunch of kids over to his home after the dance, as his date was not welcome at the house of the big party (feuding with the hostess or some other nonsense).
    My neighbor was all "No way!" and ran down his list of things HE would have to do:
    constant watch, take their keys, be prepared to shuttle people home, etc. etc.

    The most unlikely is probably the part about the legal actions.

    Also no one under the drinking age 18 is allowed to drive, as you can only get a drivers license at 18. So it would be unlikely they would have access to cars.

    If I were the parent I would probably know that they would find a way to drink at their graduation anyway, so I would prefer it to be done in a more controlled setting with some kind of supervision.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    The driving age here is (generally) 16.
    In some states, there are restrictions on 16-year-old drivers (such as can't drive with more than 1 other person in the car, can't drive after 11pm except in case of work or school, etc.).

    The thing is, if I am the parent, I don't want my kid out there on the streets AT ALL on a night like this.
    And, I'm also damn sure that I don't want my 16-year-old (or 18-year-old) to be pounding beers in the basement, even if I *am* there.

    I've seen enough "adults" who don't know how to handle their booze to know that kids are not prepared for the possible consequences.

    In the prarie states you used to be able to get your license at 14 so the farm kids could help move machinery.
    A 14 year old with a drivers license is just as bad as a drunk driver.
    Just ask me or my brother
