Female student cited for allegedly being drunk at school

A 14-year-old female student at John Burroughs High School was cited and released Monday after reportedly coming to school drunk, police said.

Police and paramedics were called to the school just before 9 a.m. after a teacher noticed the student “acting strange” and smelled of alcohol, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

The student, who was not identified because she is a minor, was transported to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center after reportedly becoming argumentative and slightly combative with authorities.

A second female student, 15, admitted that she and her friend drank tequila at a local park before going to school, Ryburn said. The 15-year-old was not cited.

The 14-year-old was released to a guardian and is due in court next month.
