The teen was taken to an area hospital for a blood draw to check for additional inebriants besides alcohol.

Police said after the evaluation the teen was booked into the Benton County Juvenile Center, they were also driving on a suspended license. No other information about the youth was released.

Police said they rely on blood draws if they 1) suspect other intoxicants besides alcohol, 2) the subject refuses a breathalyzer test, 3) there's evidence the person might be under the influence of drugs, narcotics, or marijuana.
