Channel 8’s 6 p.m. newscast included a report on a Highland Park girl being hospitalized due to alcohol poisoning. Here’s the Dallas Police Department report on the incident, which has few details. According to Rebecca Lopez’s televised report, which does not yet seem to be online, the incident happened at the Palladium Ballroom, a concert venue just south of downtown. Lopez also reported that three young men have been arrested, but I didn’t catch their names and can’t find any arrest reports online. Developing.
UPDATE: The names of the arrested teens have been reported by Channel 8, Channel 5, and The Dallas Morning News: Joshua Francis, Jacob Meredith, and Kevin O’Boyle. Their fake IDs were reportedly so sophisticated that the Secret Service and FBI are looking into them. I’ll try to confirm those agencies’ involvement first thing Monday morning.
