Thank you. He was tailgating at Indiana University. He walked to portapottys where undercover police were asking for ID's. He didn't have one with him and eventually told them he was 20. He didn't have any alcohol in his possession. They asked him to blow and he refused. Since he refused they said they could bring him to jail or write him a possession ticket. Of course he didn't want to go to jail, so they wrote him an underage possession ticket. But he didn't have any on him.
