That means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, they will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there was no erratic driving or other indicators of drunk driving.

If you or your family member has been arrested and charged near Bakersfield, California, it is crucial that you contact a qualified Kern County underage DUI attorney at once.
