PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a 13-year-old student at a Phoenix-area middle school has been taken to a hospital after coming to school drunk.
Phoenix Fire Department crews responded to Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School in Ahwatukee after a staff member noticed the boy appeared in need of medical attention.
The Arizona Republic says the unidentified student was taken to the school's health center and evaluated by a district nurse, who determined that he needed additional assistance.
Paramedics took the boy to Chandler Regional Hospital.
School officials say the boy's family was notified and was on campus before authorities had arrived.
