I don't see how it is possible that he was charged in his home. If you mean he drank in your home, then left and was charged it is indeed possible if he still had alcohol in his system or smelled of alcohol or otherwise under its effects. If you are going to let your 16 year old drink at home you have to keep him there until all the effects are gone. Apparently you didn't.
