6 middle school students cited for drinking vodka at Pa. school

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) – Six middle school students have been cited for drinking vodka in an eastern Pennsylvania county that’s seen a recent increase of unruly student behavior.

Allentown police say the students found drinking at Trexler Middle School on Wednesday had consumed only a small amount of the liquor which one student brought from home.

Police were called to the same school to break up fights on Nov. 5, and four officers were hurt in disturbances at nearby William Allen High School on Oct. 29. On Nov. 6, a 16-year-old student at Louis E. Dieruff High School allegedly pushed a teacher down some bleachers during a pep rally, and is facing charges in juvenile court.

Also on Wednesday, a charter school student allegedly punched a school bus driver, and police say nine Liberty High School students were charged with fighting.
