Can I be charged for underage drinking days after the party when there is no evidence?

I went to a party at a hotel room with a big group of people. There was alcohol there and I had a couple drinks. I am 19. Most of my friends are 21 but there are a few of us that are under age. Nothing bad happened at the party then 3 days after I got a call from a cop asking if I had been at that hotel room. He said he had my name but when I pressed him for more information he didn't say anything else. Is there a way I can arrested for under age drinking after the fact if there is no evidence?

    Do not talk with the officer. You are under no obligation to talk with them. You can be charged if he has evidence other than your confession.

    Anything is possible, however, I seriously doubt you will be charged, as there is no evidence you were doing anything illegal there. I would advise you to invoke your right to remain silent if questioned further about this matter, they have to prove you guilty, and if you confess to the offense, you convict yourself.

    Not if you refuse to talk to him. You have the right to remain silent use it.

    Of course there is a way for you to be charged with this crime, so keep your mouth shut and don't talk to anyone about anything. I assume you didn't admit to the officer that you were there right. If you get charged then get an attorney immediately.

    Yes you can. Words are evidence, in case you didn't know that. Hire a lawyer before you open your mouth and cop yourself out.
