What MIP Law Says - Guidelines for Charges

The MIP Statute: MCLA §436.1703

You can be charged with an MIP, if you are a minor, who:

  1. Buys, or attempts to buy alcohol;
  2. Consumes, or tries to consume alcohol; or
  3. Has blood alcohol content of .02% or higher (as opposed to the adult standard of .08% for drunk driving).

How To Avoid MIP Charges In The First Place, as a Minor

(these may seem obvious, but breaking any of the below guidelines could land you behind bars):

  1. Do not buy, attempt to buy, consume or attempt to consume alcohol; it is more trouble than it is worth;
  2. Repeat No. 1;
  3. Avoid hanging with the crowd that is going to get you in this kind of trouble;
  4. Avoid those public places, where police are known to bust underage MIP suspects; in big cities and small towns, we all know where those places are. Supermarket parking lots are often police favorites for MIP “trawling”.
