The other student saw money being exchanged and noted the victim told him the pills were “Oxy 20’s.” The victim later told one witness he “wasn’t feeling anything” so he took two more pills the witness said looked like Vicodin. He said later the victim wasn’t able to stand very well and told him to go into the bathroom and throw up. When they saw the ambulance both witnesses went to the office to tell what happened. With the defendant’s father present, the juvenile was questioned. He denied any knowledge, after which he was arrested for trafficking in drugs and corrupting another with drugs. He was transported to juvenile court, then to West Central. Police went to Wayne Emergency to speak with the victim, who acknowledged he purchased the oxycontin and Vicodin from the defendant and consumed them. Charges on the victim will be filed with Juvenile Court for drug abuse.
