wet-beer-can-thumb18485238SEATTLE — About 3:45 a.m. Monday morning, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 from a parent who said their teenage son was intoxicated.

The police chief said that the 16-year-old male had been at a bonfire near his home in the 5400 block of Jackson Highway near Toledo, Wash. The boy’s parents had been called by neighbors who were hosting the bonfire.

The parents told police that when they arrived at the bonfire, the teen became combative with them and he was clearly intoxicated, and that is when they called 911.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they called an ambulance for transport and the boy was taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning.

Police said a 20-year-old male was referred to the prosecutor’s office for providing alcohol at the bonfire. The prosecutor’s office will determine whether or not to press charges.

    How did a 20 year old acquire the alcohol?
    In order to legally purchase alcohol, one must provide identification proving that the buyer is at
    least 21 years of age.
