I go to school in Iowa and I received a an underage possession inside a bar. I was asked by the police if the drink in my hand was mine. I said it was and was very polite and agreeable throughout the whole situation. I left the bar and walked home. That was about a month ago. About a week ago, I got a letter saying that I have an under 21 drinking and driving charge. I have no idea where it is from. That minor charge was the only time I had a run in with the police and I think there is some mistake.
An event in Iowa could not support a criminal charge in Minnesota. A driving related crime or license revocation in any state could trigger a loss of drivers license in Minnesota, however. I would suggest that you look at the letter you received to determine the date, location, and general nature of the incident alleged, as well as who sent the letter - a court, a drivers license agency, or other, and what state is was sent from. You might want to call a lawyer, with the letter in your hand for reference.
