Dec. 5, 2012

An 18-year-old Brookfield man, a student at Brookfield East High School, was cited for drunken driving in the school parking lot Friday.

City of Brookfield Police Capt. Phil Horter said officers responded to a crash in the school's parking lot, 3305 N. Lilly Road, at 3:22 p.m. Nov. 30. The 18-year-old had rear-ended another vehicle, causing minor damage.

His blood-alcohol content was 0.10 when officers gave him a breath test at the scene, Horter said.

Anne Moore, Elmbrook School District director of communications, said the school is aware of the incident and the assistant principal is working with police.

"We do know the student was not in attendance in school Friday, and there will be school-related consequences for the student," Moore said.

It's unclear how long the teen had been in the parking lot or where he was when he drank the alcohol.
