Recently, a gentleman in Athens was arrested for disobeying a traffic control device, pedestrian under the influence of alcohol, possession or making false identification, underage possession or consumption of alcohol. Charges like these are fairly common in Athens, especially with college students. Unfortunately, charges like these do have the potential to stay on your criminal history for life.
