Police were dispatched to Gwinnett Medical Center when the young girl was brought in to the emergency room for treatment.
According to the girl, she had been celebrating her birthday with friends and ended up at the apartment complex. After a night of drinking and a subsequent morning of drinking, she blacked out.
