Caught in the act with a lit marijuana blunt, 20-year-old Lil Twist, was arrested by Calabasas police for DUI of drugs. Police stopped Lil Twist, real name Christopher Lynn Moore, for speeding in BFF Justin Bieber’s stealthy chrome Fisker Karma. When law enforcement approached the vehicle to question Lil Twist, police allegedly saw a lit joint in the car with additional undisclosed amounts of marijuana. Lil Twist was arrested and booked on suspicion of DUI of drugs. The police reported he was not DUI based on alcohol.
Although Lil Twist has been charged with a DUI based on drug consumption the penalties are the same as if he was DUI based on alcohol. Here in Washington State, the fact you are a minor and have been arrested for DUI does not necessarily mean you would be charged as a minor DUI, y0u would have to qualify. To qualify as a minor DUI the individual would have to be under the age of 21 years and would have a breath test of at least .o2 but less than .08 or a marijuana THC concentration of above .000 but less than .05. The penalties for a minor DUI include a fine ranging from $0-$1,000.00 and a maximum of 90 days in jail.
