How old is your son?

If the bottled was sealed, in a bag and the officer did not view your son drinking from the bottle, he certainly could have a legal defense. He is 21 years old, so he was legally in possession of the alcohol. While the cap was unlikely sealed, the facts you stated could be enough to fight the charge.
