University Police responded to four incidents of drunkenness in underage students over the weekend.

Shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday, UP responded to a call of a drunk student, 19, being physically supported by two other students while walking back to his residence at 1835 Hinman, UP Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said. The student had been staggering and having trouble walking. Police found him lying on the floor of his room vomiting.

The student was taken to Evanston Hospital and referred to the Office of Student Affairs for underage drinking, McAleer said.

A residence director in Sargent Hall called UP at about 2:50 a.m. Sunday to report an ill student. UP found the student in a bathroom. He had vomited and told officers he had no idea where he was, McAleer said. The student told police he had drunk at least 10 shots and three cups of “jungle juice.”

The student signed a waiver refusing further medical treatment, McAleer said, and he was referred to Student Affairs.

UP also responded to underage drinking incidents early Sunday morning at Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and McCulloch Hall.
