I'm wondering because the cop pulled him over for this and he ended up getting a DUI because the cop could "smell" the alcohol. He is underage and was arrested for having a BAC of 0.08%.
Unfortunately, it is a valid stop. As nonsensical as it sounds, faulty equipment is a basis for a traffic stop. The biggest concern that your brother should have is that he is a under age (im assuming under 21) which will get him a mandatory license suspension for 1 year and a host of other penalties. California has a zero tolerance policy for minors and DUI. If your brother would like to discuss this further, I provide free initial consulations.
