Drunk students on party buses make a lot of headlines



The high school kids at Shorecrest Prep in St. Petersburg and Durant High in Plant City are hardly the first to hop on a party bus and stumble into both trouble and a newspaper story. This morning’s St. Petersburg Times piece is just the latest in a string of them from around the country.

Here’s one from New Jersey … and Texas … and Connecticut

In case you missed the Times story, here's the money quote:

Michael Holcombe told the St. Petersburg Times Monday that his daughter, who is a senior, got sick at the Durant dance, though he declined to say if she was the student taken to the hospital.

Still, he said that contrary to rumors at school, "she's not in a coma yet. But she might be when I'm done kicking her a--."
