Question Details:I was at a party and a girl got too intoxicated and we called an ambulance. Everyone left except for the girl and 4 kids (myself included) stayed to help. One of the reasons I stayed is that I am an Eagle Scout and have had first aid training before. I was not the one who actually made the call. I thought that since we called the ambulance, that all of us were immune under state law. However everyone except for the person who actually called, received a MIP for underage drinking. Still I was only trying to do the right thing. Is there any grounds for dismissal whatsoever?
As a minor, you are not to be in possession of alcohol regardless of the circumstances that brought the officers to the scene. More than likely, if this is your first offense, you may be able to avoid having this appear on your criminal record through a deferred adjudication, but simply providing assistance does not negate the criminal activity of a MIP charge.
