Harrisonburg is one of the most heavily policed areas for underage possession in the United States. Entire shifts of the Harrisonburg Police Department are devoted to policing student housing and the Port Road Area. The Harrisonburg Police Department write hundreds of tickets to JMU students each and every weekend that school is in session. Harrisonburg P.D. even obtained an armored vehicle in the event of student rioting or unrest. Harrisonburg P.D. will be receiving two drones to watch the student housing areas and see the tops of buildings. JMU students are a favorite target of the Officers devoted to DWI Enforcement.
Harrisonburg is not the only jurisdiction enforcing the alcohol laws against adults under the age of 21 years. In late August of 2015, Fayetteville Arkansas Police arrested C.J. O’Grady a Razorback freshman and tight end. O’Grady was stopped for having a burnt out taillight on his motor scooter. The Police subsequently arrested O’Grady for DWI and underage possession. The eighteen year old O’Grady was suspended indefinitely even though he has not been tried for these offenses. The Police report indicated that O’Grady had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. The report indicated a breath alcohol level of 0.099 grams per 210 Liters of Breath. The limit for adults under the age of 21 years is 0.02 grams per 210 Liters.
O’Grady probably thought that talking to the police was his best option. He may also have attempted the roadside gymnastics designed to develop probable cause sufficient for his arrest. Bob has developed a FREE APP to speak for students encountering the police.
