Amid reports of misbehavior by New Canaan teenagers at the Darien/New Canaan high school lacrosse game held May 1 in Darien, were accounts of two drunk teens. Police have now provided more information on the incident involving the female.

At about 2 p.m., police working on a traffic and security detail at the high school campus were dispatched to the female bathroom at the new concession stand at the school.

There, an 18-year-old New Canaan resident was in one of the bathroom stalls and being helped by a couple of other individuals. The teenager appeared to be severely intoxicated, had vomited and seemed to be passed out.

Police officers revived her and carried her out of the bathroom, then contacted Darien EMS-Post 53, which took her to Stamford Hospital.

The young woman’s parents were contacted and told police they would meet their daughter in the hospital.

About 90 minutes later, at 3:30 p.m., police received a report from someone who had found a boy passed out in the woods near the varsity baseball field at the high school.

The New Canaan boy, 17, told police he had been drinking at a friend’s house in New Canaan before he went to a sports game at Darien with friends, who left him there. Police contacted the parents, who were out of state, and they had police release the boy to a family friend, who showed up soon afterward.

New Canaan High School’s principal indicated there was more misbehavior going on among spectators of the boys lacrosse game between the two schools.

The principal William Egan, on Monday addressed an email to students at that school and copied the wider NCHS community, saying he was “disappointed with the behavior of a few our students at the Darien/NC lacrosse game.”

“Consuming or possessing alcohol, threatening or harassing others, acting disrespectfully, and/or any behaviors that would not be tolerated in school will not be permitted at these contests,” Egan said in part of his email.
