Some LC-M students detained following bus ride to Kemah

LITTLE CYPRESS — A local school district is investigating a report of students with alcohol following a weekend incident in Kemah.

Students from two school districts were detained this past Saturday night in Kemah after a medical call led to the discovery of large amounts of alcohol by Kemah Boardwalk security and the Kemah Police Department, according to reports.

Approximately 50 teenagers chartered two buses to the Kemah Boardwalk for prom night festivities last Saturday. An unidentified number of students were from the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District, while the other bus contained students from Brazoswood High School in Clute, Texas.

One report stated a teenage boy required medical attention due to diabetes, but unrelated to the alcohol. Upon arrival, security and medical personnel could smell the alcohol on the bus and called police.

Law enforcement detained all the students on both buses, including one unidentified female who was taken to jail for disorderly conduct. The majority of the students were taken to the Kemah fire station and made to call parents for rides home.

Officials with the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District would not comment directly on the matter, but a statement was issued by Sherry Combs, LC-M CISD director of community relations.

“Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD is concerned with the safety and well-being of all students. The situation is under investigation and LC-M will comply with state laws and district policies.”
