Drunk Students at BCC: PR Tofig says "a few students were showing spirit."

NBC Washington: Police Called to Bethesda Chevy Chase High School for Intoxicated Students

School spirit is in the air at Bethesda Chevy Chase High School, and it may be in a bottle, too.
Montgomery County police officers responded Thursday morning to a report of several intoxicated students at the school.
"This week is homecoming week," school spokesperson Dana Tofig told News4, "and a few students were showing spirit."
Tofig said alcoholic beverages were found in a vehicle on school property.  Several students are being interviewed in the incident.


  1. In the past few minutes, the NBC story was changed to delete Dana Tofig's name. The story was also rephrased to tone down Mr. Tofig's comment about students "showing spirit".

  2. somebody got yelled at

  3. I think the fact that a big-market news outlet can so easily be cowed by a local government operation really highlights the pathetic state of our press coverage.
