Staff at a hospital in Tempe have found a drunk student put in a wheelchair by his friends and left in the lobby to receive assistance.The 20-year-old Arizona State University student was passed out and had a note on him detailing that he had been in a drinking contest the previous night.
According to KPHO, he was identified as Aidan Mohr and the incident was reported at St. Luke's Hospital.
"I've been drinking and I need some help," the note read.
Tempe police Sgt. Michael Pooley informed that he was found between 1:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 11.
"When somebody is in a situation like this, they need to get emergency assistance to their friends. [...] If they don't, it is going to raise suspicion," he says.
His blood-alcohol level tested at 0.47 percent, almost six times the legal limit and he may have to deal with a fine or charges over underage drinking.
Mohr downed 20 shots of tequila before having a fit, shaking, turning blue and eventually losing consciousness.
Pooley has added that the student is enrolled at Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, but the school is on spring break and the fraternity is not taking responsibility for the incident.
"The Sigma Alpha Epsilon headquarters has learned of an incident in which a member of our Arizona Beta chapter at Arizona State University was given medical attention for alcohol poisoning.
"National staff and local alumni leaders are investigating whether or not the chapter or its members had any affiliation with this incident, and at this time, we have no indication that it occurred in conjunction with any chapter-planned event or activity," fraternity supervisors have stated.
"When the incidents happen off campus, as these have, the ASU Police Department and the Dean of Students Office work collaboratively with City of Tempe officials and the Tempe Police Department to respond," ASU officials stress.
