Alcohol you

Carson s story

  • On December 2, 2008, Carson Starkey died of alcohol poisoning following a fraternity hazing ritual at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. Carson was 18 years old, finishing his first semester of college.

  • Carson was instructed to split a fifth of rum with another pledge, drink two 24-ounce Steel Reserve cans and a can of Sparks, while a bottle of Everclear was passed around. He lost consciousness, showing multiple signs of alcohol poisoning, but his fraternity brothers abandoned an attempt to seek help for fear of getting in trouble.

  • Ultimately, Carson’s blood alcohol content at the time of death was between .39% and .447% -- over four times the legal limit for driving in Texas and California.

  • One call could have saved his life.

The signs of alcohol poisoning
The Signs of Alcohol Poisoning

  • Mental confusion

  • Unresponsive

911 Lifeline Legislation

A new law passed by the Texas Legislature in 2011 means that a person under 21 won't be charged by the police for possessing or consuming alcohol if the person calls 911 because someone might have alcohol poisoning.

This limited immunity applies only to the first person to call for medical assistance, only if the caller re-mains on the scene until medical assistance arrives and cooperates with EMS and law enforcement.

  • Does the activity require individuals to perform illegal or immoral acts?

  • Does the act mentally, emotionally, or physically threaten an individual?
