I am an 18 year old DACA holder and I got an underage drinking ticket. What will the consequences be?

Asked 12 months ago - Elkhart, IN

I am a student at Indiana University and I got a underage drinking ticket. My record is clear and I was one of the few people who were being cooperative with the cops. What will the consequences be? can I get my drivers license or my Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival suspended? What should I do? Thank you!
