Bainbridge teen passes out in Athens eatery

An 18-year-old Bainbridge, Georgia, woman was cited for underage consumption of alcohol after she passed out in Zaxby’s on East Clayton Street, Athens-Clarke County police said.

An off-duty police officer was working a security job at the restaurant when at about 1 a.m. someone notified the officer that the woman was slumped over at a table, police said. After not being able to rouse the woman the officer called for an ambulance, but cancelled the request when the woman came to.

She was released on a citation after a friend told the officer she was calling for an Uber to take them home, police said.
