Tech police cite underage drinker

Tech student, Aaron Gray, was cited for underage drinking after being found passed out in the lobby of New Hall South on Feb. 17 at 2:27 a.m.  

“When the officers got there, apparently he was awake by that time. He just could hardly stand,” Donna White, administrative associate for the Tech police, said.
White also said, “He had just drank too much.”

Paramedics were called to the scene as a precaution. 

Gray was then taken to Cookeville Regional Medical Center. The officer on the scene followed Gray to the hospital where he later wrote him a ticket.
“He didn’t take him to jail. But when you write a ticket, it’s still the same thing as being arrested,” White said.
According to the report, Gray was cooperative and continuously apologized to the officers.
Gray was cited for underage consumption, because he is under the age of 21. He will appear in court on April 1.
