Two Thief River Falls 14-year-old girls received treatment after coming to the emergency room with the symptoms of alcohol poisoning.

Thief River Falls police say that they got a call on Sunday night about 10:30 that a 14-year-old girl had come to the emergency room with the symptoms of alcohol poisoning. Another 14-year-old girl later showed up at the emergency room with the same symptoms. They told authorities they had both been drinking UV Vodka at a local home.

Authorities say one of the girls had a blood alcohol content of .24. The legal limit for driving for a person 21 or older is .08.

Both girls spent the night in the hospital and were released the next day.

Authorities say a 17-year-old boy may be charged in relation to the case. Authorities say they are trying to find out who supplied the girls with the alcohol, and that the supplier may be charged as well.
