Student reports intoxicated female in Travers Hall
On Sept. 15 at approximately 2:58 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the T-Dubs lobby area in Travers Hall on a report of an intoxicated female.
The police were met by two individuals, both of whom are students at the College.
Campus Police observed that the intoxicated student was alert and conscious, holding a plastic trash bag into which she had vomited.
The police asked the student if she had consumed any alcoholic beverages that evening, to which she stated she had. However, she was uncertain as to how many alcoholic beverages she consumed.
According to the witness, she notified Campus Police for help immediately after discovering the intoxicated female student in the lobby area of T-Dubs.
TCNJ EMS arrived on the scene to treat and evaluate the student’s condition. The witness notified TCNJ EMS of the medications the suspect was taking at the time.
The suspect was unaware that she should not be consuming alcoholic beverages while taking said medications.
Shortly afterward, the College’s Professional Staff On-Call Residence Life Director arrived on the scene to document the incident.
The intoxicated student signed a refusal of medical attention form. Per the New Jersey 9-1-1 Lifeline Legislation Act, since the witness contacted Campus Police for help, the intoxicated student was not cited for possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons under the legal age.
