Alden Whiteside could not have handled things worse on his way Spring Break in Florida. First, there was the seven cases of beer in plain view in his truck. Then there was the problem of being 19 and not allowed to drink or buy alcohol. Then there was the fact that he was speeding. Then there was the fake driver’s license that he was using. Finally, there was the marijuana discovered in the car. That pretty much covers most of the criminal code. He was not the only Alabama college student facing charges from a Spring Break gone bad.
