Police say they found a “highly intoxicated” 16-year-old boy who was “out of control” when they arrived at the scene.

Police arrested the teen and brought him back to the station, where he was held until he was sober enough to be released.

About an hour after the boy arrived at the station, a 17-year-old girl came into the building demanding to see her boyfriend, who had been arrested.

“The female was also intoxicated and uncooperative with the police,” says Belleville police in a press release.
