A friend and I were drinking and he just gave us a breathalyzer and let us go. We are over 21 also. I am not suspose to drink on probation or be at bars and this was outside of a bar.
What makes you say the officer did not know? Perhaps he turned over your information to the State's Attorney. Perhaps you just got lucky. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. If you should not have been drinking, you have admitted to a violation of your probation. You should not say anything more in this or any other public forum.
An officer will have access to your criminal history, but will probably not have access to the specific conditions of your probation. That being said, you should begin saving your money for a good criminal defense attorney when you continue to violate your probation and your luck runs out and your luck will run out.
Depends on how recently you got probation. Also, I agree that he would not have ready access to the conditions of the probation.
