A teenager has been taken to hospital after passing out from taking too much alcohol at an underpass in Lurgan this evening (Saturday).
The youngster was taken to Craigavon hospital following the alarming incident at the subway underpass on the Portadown Road.
Police have issued an appeal to parents to be aware of where their children.
Two ambulances and multiple police crews were dispatched to the scene, however, when police arrived a number of teenagers began fighting with them at the location.
Posting on the PSNI Criagavon Facebook page, a spokesperson said: “Already tonight we’ve had multiple RTCs, mental health calls, assaults and suspected drink drivers. Looking after your kids takes us away from that.
“If they’re out and you don’t know what they’re at, it’s time you did.
“It’s clear from speaking to some kids tonight that their parents think ‘I’m away to the subway’ means they’re craving a meat ball marinara. It doesn’t.
“Time for some to step up. Custody and the criminal justice process follows for any one committing violent offences. Being a teenager doesn’t make you immune from consequences.”
