    Drunk ASU student left at hospital with Post-it note

    Drunk ASU student left at hospital with Post-it note

    An Arizona State University student who passed out from drinking tequila was left in wheelchair in a hospital lobby with a Post-it note to tell doctors that he’d participated in a drinking competition.

    Tempe police say the 19-year-old student was found early Saturday morning in the emergency room lobby of St. Luke’s Hospital.

    According to police, a sticky note on the student’s body gave his name and said he’d been drinking and needed help.

    Hospital staff noticed the student and helped him.

    Sgt. Michael Pooley says the student had a blood-alcohol level of .47 percent after consuming about 20 shots of tequila during a drinking competition. A driver in Arizona is considered intoxicated at 0.08 percent.

    Police say criminal charges could be filed against the friends who left the student.
    As an alumni of THE University of Arizona this doesn't surprise me from our brothers to the north.

    Jesus... .47%!?

    That's definitely near death levels.

    The guy that supplied the alcohol should be charged. The kid should be charged if applicable a well.

    You know you have quality friends when they load you up on alcohol and when you pass out just leave you in a wheelchair with a sticky note attached.

    This is what passes for friends these days? Thank God we had a different definition when I was growing up.

    Is that like when people keep saying THE Ohio State University? If so, I have another University to hate.

    And what charges could be filed? They dropped their friend off IN the hospital.

    I would hope these people could be charged with something. If they were present when he was drinking that much, they are assisting suicide. Must've changed their minds.

    This "shots" business?? Ridiculous. Absolutely abominable.

    I think UVA once used the logo THE UNIVERSITY on all its swag.....

    Under state law, there is probably some argument they had no duty to take him to the hospital, but once they took dominion over him to get him there, they had a custodial duty arising from their voluntary actions to get him help. That said, my gut instinct is that this is going to be one of those fraternity things and they did it to distance the frat from the impending corpse. Plus since the student is 19, I assume they assume the dropper offer was also the alcohol provider to someone underage.

    Assisting suicide? How about, dumb ass dunk as **** freshman panicked, wanted to get their friend help, but didn't want to get in any trouble from the law or school? Much better to drop them off in the lobby of the hospital than to leave them in some closet in a house party to die like Samantha Spady's friends.

    How about they were all a bunch of assholes participating in the possible death of a friend?

    Dumping him off at the hospital with a sticky note is not the same as getting him care. So Depraved Indifference or Reckless Disregard. Made even worse when you ask, how did they get him there? They either drove drunk or the sober driver made a sober decision to dump him.

    I'd imagine the school will have something to say as well once they've identified the perps (if they are students).
