Police: Drunken 12-year-old taken to hospital
WAUSAU - Wausau police say a drunken 12-year-old boy was taken to a hospital and kept overnight.

Lt. Mark Pankow says police were called to a Wausau home Saturday night after a neighbor of the boy reported he was intoxicated.

Pankow says a blood test at the hospital determined the boy's blood-alcohol level was ``well over'' the legal limit to drive, which is 0.08 percent in Wisconsin.

Pankow says the boy admitted drinking vodka, and told police he drinks alcohol ``about every three days or so.''

Investigators found empty alcohol containers in the boy's room. The boy was taken to a juvenile shelter after being released from the hospital.
