MONTGOMERY, AL (KTRK) --It's not a surprise that teens let loose and party during spring break. It's their opportunity to relax and have fun with their friends. But for one 19-year-old, spring break ended a little early.
University of Alabama student Alden Whiteside was on his way to Destin for some spring break fun when deputies pulled him over for speeding and reckless driving.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office posted a photo on Facebook of the traffic stop, showing Whiteside's truck with seven 30-packs of Natural Light beer in the back.
"If you're only 19 years old and heading to spring break in Destin with seven 30 pack cases of beer in your truck, marijuana in the center console, and an altered drivers license to make your age 24, you probably don't want to be speeding and driving recklessly on Interstate 10. Going to jail," the caption read.
Facebook user Ginny A. asked, "So did all that beer get poured out? That's a lot of alcohol."
The sheriff's office replied, "Yep!"
The photo has been viewed millions of times. The sheriff's office said they hope this will teach other people a lesson.
"We hope it reaches and convinces a multitude of spring breakers to make good choices," the Facebook post read.
Whiteside was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of alcohol by someone under the age of 21. He's also accused of possession of a driver's license with an altered date of birth.
