Alabama Police Say 6 Middle School Students Drank Alcohol on Bus

Police in Attalla say six middle school students were caught drinking alcohol on a school bus during their morning ride to class.

Authorities say an eighth-grade boy brought an unidentified liquor with him on the bus last Friday and passed it around to others. Five eighth-graders and a seventh-grader reportedly shared the alcohol, which was in two soda bottles.

The students were detained at school and later released to their parents. Police say it wasn't the first time the eighth-grader had brought alcohol for the bus ride to school.
