Drunk Teen Found ‘Passionately Kissing Signpost’ By Authorities
Authorities found a drunk teenager passionately snogging a signpost as he took a break from wandering the streets of Plymouth after a boozy night out.
Alcohol can do funny things to people. It definitely has some good aspects when used in moderation; it can come in handy at social gatherings, for celebrating special occasions or to help you relax after a long day.
However, there’s a fine line between tipsy and drunk and I’m sure many of us will be familiar with the dark side of alcohol, like hangovers and the tendency for it to corrupt your judgement.
A night of drinking can cause many to get up close and personal with people they might not usually interact with and this particular teenager was really no different, except rather than locking lips with another human he decided to share his affection with a signpost.
The 16-year-old was caught in action on Friday (August 9) by a passing ambulance crew who stopped to help when they realised he was intoxicated. The legal drinking age in the UK is 18 but the teen, who had been at a party in Devon, had clearly had a fair amount to drink as officials said he could ‘barely walk or talk’.
According to Plymouth Live, the boy was spotted canoodling the sign on a road in Devonport at around 11pm before he slumped over and threw up. He didn’t have any house keys or money on him and the battery from his phone was missing, meaning he had no way of contacting anyone.
He was also around five miles from home, on the ‘opposite side of the city’ to where he lived.
Thankfully workers in the passing ambulance came to the rescue and took him to the A&E to be checked over. The officials also notified the teen’s parents of his whereabouts.
Plymouth C Section Response shared details of the situation on Twitter, where they said it was ‘concerning’ to have found the boy in such a drunken state.
Crownhill Police officials hope the incident will encourage young people to think twice about their alcohol consumption and raise awareness about recognising limits when it comes to drinking.
The tweets from Plymouth C Section Response suggest that aside from being very drunk the boy was otherwise unharmed, though he might have felt as though he’d been hit by a bus when he woke up the next morning.
If kissing a signpost wasn’t enough to make him see the negative side effects of alcohol I’m sure the hangover would have done the trick!
