Three high school students in Chester County kicked off their holiday break on the wrong note Thursday after they reportedly showed up for classes legally drunk.
The East Marlborough Police Department announced that a trio of female Unionville High School students was charged after failing breathalyzer tests, the Daily Local reports. Police did not disclose the identities or ages of the girls, but did say they were all seniors.
Police said that multiple staff numbers smelled alcohol on the students and reported the situation to administrators. The students' parents and police were contacted by the end of the first period.
Responding officers conducted a search of the vehicle that the girls used and found beer. An investigation revealed that the girls attended an off-campus party the previous night and still had alcohol in their systems.
In Pennsylvania, the legal blood alcohol content limit for those under the age of 21 is .02 percent.
Unionville High School is located in Kennett Square and has an enrollment of approximately 1,300 students.
