  license where the holder fails to appear before the court, pay a fine,

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  Subdivision  3  of section 65-c of the alcoholic beverage

to read as follows:
  3.  Any  person  who  unlawfully  possesses an alcoholic beverage with
intent to consume may be summoned before and examined by a court  having
jurisdiction  of  that charge; provided, however, that nothing contained
herein shall authorize, or be construed to authorize, a peace officer as
defined in subdivision thirty-three of  section  1.20  of  the  criminal
procedure  law or a police officer as defined in subdivision thirty-four
of section 1.20 of such law to arrest a person who unlawfully  possesses
an alcoholic beverage with intent to consume. If a determination is made
sustaining  such  charge the court may impose a fine not exceeding fifty
dollars and/or completion of an alcohol  awareness  program  established
pursuant  to section 19.25 of the mental hygiene law and/or an appropri-
ate amount of community service not to exceed thirty hours.  IN ADDITION
TO ANY FINE, ALCOHOL AWARENESS PROGRAM AND/OR COMMUNITY SERVICE  IMPOSED
BY  THE  COURT PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, THE COURT MAY SUSPEND THE DRIV-
ER'S LICENSE OF ANY PERSON WHO FAILS TO APPEAR BEFORE THE COURT,  PAY  A
FINE,  COMPLETE  AN  ALCOHOL  AWARENESS  PROGRAM  OR  COMPLETE COMMUNITY
SERVICE PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION WITHIN THE PERIOD OF  TIME  ESTABLISHED
