HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Students at Hempfield High School are facing disciplinary action for selling and drinking alcohol in classroom.

Pennsylvania State Police were called to school Monday after school officials learned a drink had been sold for $5 then passed around classroom.

“They’re all dumb,” Brandi Harbaugh, a student, said. “I don’t know why you would bring in alcohol to a school of all things – like, that’s the weekends that you want to get in trouble with the cops, not with the school.”

Students tell KDKA-TV the drink mixed in the water bottle was whiskey and blue Kool-Aid.

“None of the kids were reported to be visibly intoxicated,” State Trooper Steve Limani says, “just that they had consumed some alcohol.”

A 14-year-old student reportedly got alcohol from 19-year-old brother.

Nearly a dozen freshmen are facing disciplinary action which could range from fines to out of school suspension.
