Default re: Possession of alcohol open container in public: I'm not 21 years old.

Make sure you get legal counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off your record eventually--jail time is not likely but having that arrest and/or a conviction on your record could make job-hunting etc. more difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to some kind of court supervision or even be dismissed etc.
