WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- Wausau police say a drunken 12-year-old boy was taken to a hospital and kept overnight.
Lt. Mark Pankow says police were called to a Wausau home Saturday night after a neighbor of the boy reported he was intoxicated.
Pankow tells WAOW-TV (http://bit.ly/1lmyLIe ) a blood test at the hospital determined the boy's blood-alcohol level was "well over" the legal limit to drive, which is 0.08 percent in Wisconsin.
Pankow says the boy admitted drinking vodka, and told police he drinks alcohol "about every three days or so."
Investigators found empty alcohol containers in the boy's room. The boy was taken to a juvenile shelter after being released from the hospital.
