Emergency response personnel rushed a 14-year-old Los Alamos girl to the hospital after her mother found her staggering on foot along San Ildefonso Road Wednesday afternoon. Her mother called police, telling them her daughter was disoriented and at times unresponsive.

Police dispatched an ambulance to the scene and the girl was transported to Los Alamos Medical Center, where her blood alcohol content registered .19 — or more than twice the legal limit for adult drivers, Los Alamos Police Sgt. Fred Rascon said.

The incident began when the girl’s mother arrived at Mesa Public Library about 4:30 p.m. to pick her up. She called her daughter’s cell phone and asked her where she was, the girl allegedly ran out of a 17-year-old boy’s residence near San Ildefonso Road.

According to the police report, the teens planned to get together and get drunk during the time the girl was supposed to be at the library. The boy obtained vodka from someone but declined to reveal his source, police said.

Results of a blood test to determine if the girl’s system contained drugs are expected within two weeks, police said.

The girl was released from LAMC to her mother at about

10 p.m. Wednesday.
