A Trafford man is facing criminal charges after his 15-year-old girlfriend was hospitalized with alcohol poisoning during an underage drinking party.
Tim J. Woznick, 18, of Woodlawn Drive, was released from the Westmoreland County Prison after posting $5,000 bond following his arrest by borough police on charges of corruption of minors, disorderly conduct, possession of alcohol by a minor, resisting arrest and driving under the influence of alcohol.
Woznick's girlfriend, who was not identified, had to be resuscitated at the scene by ambulance medics who responded to the 10:02 p.m. call Saturday on Wallace Avenue. The girl was admitted to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in Oakland.
"It was a party in the woods. We're not releasing any more information right now because it's still under investigation," said police Lt. Carmen Disso. "There could be more arrests."
Police declined to say whether the girl was still undergoing treatment.
Police were notified after someone saw a female teenager lying on the ground where several vehicles were parked at the end of the dead-end street.
When police arrived, several underage people were at the scene. According to the arrest affidavit, some of them identified Woznick as the victim's boyfriend.
Patrolman Michael Dunn said Woznick refused officers' requests to turn off the ignition of his truck and get out of the vehicle. The arrest affidavit said Woznick attempted to push away officers and cursed at them when they attempted to remove him from the vehicle.
Police said some teens who were at the party took officers to Shady Lane, where the party was held. They told police that the minors were drinking rum and whiskey.
Woznick's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday before Penn Township District Judge Helen Kistler.
