Chauffeur Blows Whistle on Drinking Promgoers

Posted on June 4, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

BETHESDA, Md. – Thirteen students outside the Walt Whitman High School prom Friday night were cited for possession of alcohol, and two were so drunk they had to be treated at a hospital, Montgomery County police said.

In the parking lot of the Bethesda Hyatt Regency Hotel, at 7400 Wisconsin Ave., a limousine driver confronted several students he was chauffeuring about drinking in his limousine. The incident drew the attention of hotel security and Walt Whitman staff, police said. Police were called about 11:30 p.m.

Two flasks of alcohol were found in the limousine, as were water bottles that smelled of alcohol, police said. The two students taken to the hospital – a boy and girl, both 17 – were treated and released. The students not taken to the hospital were picked up by their parents, police said. The arrests were part of a broader county effort to enforce underage drinking laws during prom season, a campaign that resulted in 270 alcohol-related citations before it concluded Sunday. Of those, 43 went to people 17 or younger, and 210 went to those 18 to 20 years old, police said.
