Paramedics transported a 15-year-old girl with suspected alcohol poisoning from an underage party to the hospital this weekend. Police brought eight other juveniles to the station to take a breathalyzer.

"Some of them were drunk. Some were not," Norwalk Police Chief Dave Light said. "A lot of admissions were made here."

Officers on the second shift responded to a Chatham Street apartment for an underage party at 9:05 p.m. Friday. Light said a caller reported seeing teenagers dropped off at the residence.

After a few minutes of knocking at the door, someone let officers inside.

Light said police detected "a strong smell of marijuana" coming from inside, saw a marijuana pipe on a coffee table in plain view and three bottles of vodka "close to the teenagers." One of the bottles was nearly empty.

Officers also heard people vomiting. Light said police found a 15-year-old girl in the bathroom vomiting.

"She showed signs of alcohol poisoning," the chief said. "Somebody could die from something like that."

North Central EMS transported the girl to Fisher-Titus Medical Center. Her condition was unknown as of press time.

Police took eight juveniles into protective custody, three of whom officers determined were under the influence of alcohol.

"Eight of the juveniles were brought to the station. We had them take a breathalyzer," Light said.

The teens who took the breath test had blood-alcohol content levels of .032 percent, .046 percent and .08 percent, he said.

The nine juveniles at the party ranged in age from 14 to 17.

When police asked the teenagers if they knew who the apartment owner was, Light said only one girl did.

"One girl had all those kids here. All the rest didn't know who lived there," the chief said. "Apparently a parent was gone (from) there."

Charles A. Sidoti, 20, of 95 N. Prospect St., was charged with underage consumption. Police said he appeared to be under the influence of marijuana.

"The 20-year-old (man) admitted to taking a couple shots. He told us it wasn't illegal to be high," Light said.

Police seized a prescription bottle with a torn label that contained three different types of pills and a film container with traces of suspected marijuana as evidence. Officers forwarded a report to the Huron County Prosecutor's Office and Huron County Juvenile Court.

"We are going to actively pursue the underage parties when we get information on them," Light said. "Spring break is coming. Prom is coming."

Yall Make Me Sick

Really party pooper's is ALL you can say? Are you serious? I pray you're not a parent! You're a very sad person & have problems! You're sick in your head! Or are you the person who bought the junk for these kids? Lord help us all if your a parent & have young kids!

dramadramadrama

I pray you learn how to spell. You're not a parent, you're a very sad person, you're sick in the head. Common grammar isn't that hard.

onegirlarmy

lol...let the drama begin!
teens will find any way to experiment..alcohol is the gateway!
more dangerous than you or i on many levels.
you wanna know what else...
you can lead a horse to water but can not make them drink.

"Alcohol is the gateway?" Are you a Quaker? I miss the relevance of your last line..how does that pertain?

onegirlarmy

alcohol is funny!
it makes people funny or so some think.
it's legal and it's readily available.
especially if parents are regular endulgers.
passed out drunk,most teens will try it atleast once and more if pressure from peers is sufficient.
the last line is a metaphor or an irony maybe even a bit of an understatement.
teens are gonna drink...even when they know the stakes are high.
alcohol is the gateway for more trouble ahead.
choose well.

Yall Make Me Sick

O no grammar police! Is that all you can comment on? You live a sad life. Let me go on the NR & correct people's grammar? You're a JOKE!!!

onegirlarmy

just saying...
i'm not the grammar po po...
but don't care much for ignorance.
i figure if i can read "people" pretty well...
i should be able to read their auto correct...haaa
some phones/machines are smarter than the person dialing/operating these days.
eeeeeshhhh
so petty!
ANYWAY....
i hope this girl is ok and gets a sick feeling before she tries this again.

It's "I", not "i". Before we cast the stone make sure yours is correct. Just sayin'.

onegirlarmy

"i" think you are an "i"diot!

WASP71

Awwwww...did I make the little girl angry because she tried to be such a good little girl then found out how stupid she actually is?? No my dear- I believe I just proved YOU are the idiot..and it was soooooo easy....

hahaa...grow up!

Yall Make Me Sick

I didn't mean you onegirlarmy! I'm talking about dramadramadrama!

onegirlarmy

ok...thanks Yall...but wasp whatever is a joke too.
"i"really think so!

WASP71

Onegirlarmy it would be Y'all and joke, too. Or you could actually use also, but I'm sure that was WAY beyond your scope. Next time you want to pick with someone make sure it's a snotty-as* brat like yourself..it will make your life easier..and you won't get quite as upset. So just sit there in your section 8 apartment we all pay for, welfare cookie eating fat as*, and play your games with your wife-beater t-shirt wearing redneck boyfriend and learn how to write correctly and I won't have to make you look worse than you already are. 'Nuff said home girl.

onegirlarmy

who's upset?
by the way...i have owned 2 homes.
you already made yourself look bad...no help on my part.
you are petty and obviously have issues.
why the double post?...lmao
you know nothing about me and never will.
poof be gone!!!

WASP71

I would say you are about 23-27 years old. You have never owned a house on your own, you say that to make yourself look good on paper. You probably graduated high school but not with high marks. If you went to a college at all it was a basic one, maybe on-line. You more than likely didn't finish. If you have a job it is just above minimum wage, probably around $9.50 an hour most likely through a temp service. Not knowing correct puntuation and grammar tells a lot. I would say you have 2 kids that are from 2 different fathers and you get help from your parents raising them because you became pregnant way too young. Of course this is just a educated guess. Nothing more, nothing less. And you have issues such as checking back often to these posts to get the last word in. Me too...hehehe. That's all I will comment to you because you my young lady are not worth the time or effort any more. Plus your no fun to argue with. Your to easy. Good night. And the double post was the Reflector. So nice try on an insult, but didn't work out for ya...

onegirlarmy

so much for your educated guess.
you are way off on the age and everything else ...lol..."also"
i don't need to make myself look good for anyone on paper.
i am just that good.
i also do not need to try to insult a disturbed person like yourself.
you added nothing to this story other than to correct my "punctuation".
don't be so jealous,you make yourself sound miserable.
peace to you and i hope you are smiling.
i sure am as well.
:D

whatwhat79

Yea he or she is sick and your a sad sad person.

Good LORD, did you just rise up on that pulpit? Chill out, it was a comment. Rather funny one, I might add. Unclench those cheeks and relax, life's too short to be that judgemental and uptight.

ferball14
