Memphis students treated after downing vodka

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Memphis police say students at Cordova Middle School became sick after drinking what they thought was lemonade, but turned out to be vodka.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Alyssa Macon-Moore told The Commercial Appeal that officers were called to the school at about 8:25 a.m. CST Friday. The Memphis Fire Department sent three ambulances, but no one was transported.

Macon-Moore says seven girls, two were 13 and the others 14, received summonses to Juvenile Court for possession of alcoholic beverages on school property and were released to their parents.
