Report: Teens had drugs, alcohol in car outside Rock Hill gas station

Two teenagers were arrested after officers found them in a car at a Rock Hill gas station with drugs and alcohol, according to Rock Hill Police.

Someone reported a teenage boy unconscious in the passenger seat of a car at a Riverview Road gas station Sunday morning, according to a police report. They found boy man reclined in the passenger seat “either asleep or unconscious,” and said the female driver “behaved very erratically, as though she were under the influence of alcohol and/or a controlled substance.”

EMS was called to examine the 17-year-old boy. The 14-year-old female driver was “extremely uncooperative” with officers who tried to get information from her, police said. When asked about the open can of beer in the cup holder, the girl “denied any knowledge of it but did admit that it was ‘technically’ hers,” the report states.

The girl gave officers a false birth date, continued to be uncooperative with them and began moving “in an aggressive manner” toward two people watching the scene from the gas station, police said. Officers searched the car after removing her and the male suspect.

Inside the car, officers found five Xanax bars and an open and partially empty bottle of liquor, the report states. The girl, whose mother was called to the scene, admitted to owning the pills. She was issued a juvenile summons for possession of Xanax, possession of beer by a person under 21, giving false information to police and public disorderly conduct, and was released at the scene.

The male suspect was issued a citation for possession of beer by a person under 21 and released on a promise to appear in court.
