Drunk woman found passed out in Church Hall

A woman was found passed out on the first floor of Church Hall on Feb 19. around 1:30 a.m. The resident assistant on duty called the UGA Police Department after another resident saw the woman on the ground and remembered she had seen her downtown on Snapchat, according to the report.

Emergency medical services examined the woman and determined she was safe to stay on her own. According to the report, the woman was underage, but medical amnesty was granted since the call for medical assistance was related to the woman’s drinking.

The woman had mud on her knees and hands and had taken her shoes off. The officer attempted to wake her up by sitting her up and applying sternum rubs. Once the student woke up, the officer asked for her name and if she knew where she was. According to the report, the student’s responses were unintelligible because her speech was slurred. Eventually, she spoke clearly but answered “Church Hall” to all of the questions asked of her.
