Son went to jail because of a diluted drug test two days prior they took another drug test they said he passed it they acted all dumbfounded but put him in jail. Because of a diluted drug test. He hasn't done anything but drink water or milk. He didnt have the money for soda. But 3 days later when he got paid he was able to buy some pop. Went to the probation officer passed the drug test. I was told they put him in there for a diluted drug test. They never told me that he passed one. They're playing games with him.
Your question is not exactly clear but it sounds like your son is on probation with a condition that they drug test him periodically. The first test showed that he probably tried to beat the test by drinking excessive amounts of liquids or actually adding liquids to the sample. Either on of those things will dilute the sample and give a lower reading. Probation can tell if the sample has been tampered with because they also measure the other chemicals in the sample. One substance they measure is creatine. If the creatine level is low it is likely that the person is diluting the sample to avoid drug detection.
The fact that he passed a test two prior to the diluted test doesn't mean much. Two days is sufficient time to use drugs and then try to hide the fact by flushing his system with excessive liquids.

Unfortunately, being on probation often times meaning you don't get the benefit of the doubt anymore. So if they suspected he was trying to overhydrate to dilute his urine and avoid failing a drug test, they may well treat that like a violation of his probation or even a failed test, and sanction him accordingly. As stated above, many drugs have a short detection window, so three days is plenty of time for many drugs to be completely eliminated from his system if they thought he was using.
