'Party Patrol' snags 24 underage drinkers at birthday bashon April 18, 2013 @ 12:42 pm (Updated: 12:56 pm - 4/18/13 )
The Party Intervention Patrol arrested 24 people, aged 18 to 21, for minor in possession at an apartment in Bonney Lake on April 6.
Among those cited was a female who was hospitalized after "she was discovered semi-conscious and suffering from alcohol poisoning on the bathroom floor," read a statement from Pierce County Community Connections.
According to Sgt. Matt Kurle with the Sumner Police Department, the teenagers were binge drinking to celebrate a friend's birthday.
"With a beer pong table set-up on the kitchen table and party favors consisting of Everclear, orange juice and marijuana, it appears we shut this party down before anyone really got hurt," he said.
The so-called "Party Patrol" is a multi-agency effort and consists of law enforcement, substance abuse professionals and community volunteers. It is funded by the Washington Impaired Driving Council.
