Charges Pending In Case Of Drunk Juveniles
The Putnam County sheriff's department says they may bring charges of contributing to the delinquency of minors -- if they can determine just how three teenagers got hold of some vodka that they then placed into a Smoothie cup as they attended the Putnam County fair this week. A 16-year-old male and two 15-year-old females were questioned after reserve deputies noticed one of them in an intoxicated state and began an investigation. Authorities later found a second female and learned that the young man was so drunk that he had to be taken to the emergency room for treatment. The parents of all three were notified and Deputy Trevor Barrett says charges will be brought once investigators get statements from those involved. Meanwhile, the three juveniles have been banned from coming back to the fair for its duration this week.
