The male student assisting the intoxicated female stated that they were drinking whiskey at a small party. The smell of alcohol was emanating from his breath. 

The intoxicated female was unstable to stand on her feet. Campus Police then had her sit on a bench. She was unable to form complete sentences when asked questions about her actions that evening, became very emotional and began to cry.

TCNJ EMS was dispatched and arrived on the scene to evaluate the intoxicated female. Due to the cold weather, Campus Police had all the individuals move inside the Music Building for warmth.

Pro Staff arrived on the scene and spoke to both of the individuals. Campus Police escorted them back to their rooms. 

Amnesty was granted due to their compliance with Campus Police’s questions.
