When you're enjoying a drink at a party, it can feel harmless to walk to another party while bringing your drink with you. Likewise, when you're enjoying a night on the town, it's tempting to take a drink with you when your friends want to move on to another bar.
Unfortunately, carrying an open bottle/container or drink on the street is illegal, and open bottle arrests are very common. Worse yet, these second-degree offenses can carry serious legal consequences, including:
- Possible jail time
- A criminal conviction on your record
