What are police procedures for questioning and testing minors suspected of underage drinking in tennessee. We were recently exposed to a situation where the police were 'tipped' to a teenage gathering with alcohol. Each minor was asked if he/she had drank. Many lied and said 'no' and were released to drive away. Those who admitted 'yes', even if only one sip, were bused to the police station and had to be bailed out. No miranda was given.
