Port Police Report: Middle School Student Cited After Showing Up Drunk
A roundup of the recent activity from the police blotter also includes a long list of 911 calls for reasons that don't really seem to be an emergency.
Editor's note: This article has been updated to reflect a correction. The actual blood alcohol content of the middle school student was .023, not .23 as originally stated.
The old water bottle trick didn't fool anybody at Thomas Jefferson Middle School on Wednesday.
Port Washington police were called to the school at 7:45 a.m. after several students notified administration that a 14-year-old Saukville boy had a bottle of Gatorade with liquor mixed in.
Police found the boy and administered a preliminary breath test which showed him to have a .023 blood alcohol content. He was cited for juvenile alcohol.
What a way to start the morning.
