A 17-year-old high school student was charged last week after police report that he brought alcohol to school in a water bottle. An officer at the school was patrolling the parking lot when he allegedly viewed a boy enter the trunk of his car and take out a water bottle containing a clear liquid. Thereafter, according to the student resource officer’s report, the student passed the bottle to another student, who allegedly took a sniff before sipping indicating the presence of something alcoholic.
The resource officer immediately apprehended the student, taking him to the school office where his bags were analyzed. Administrators found the suspected water bottle among the student’s effects. Police have charged him with minor in possession of liquor under 21. The administrators immediately sent the boy home, where he will likely face school discipline as well.
