Wasted 8-Year-Old Kid Drunk At Skatepark

Rocking up to Fairfield skatepark only to find an 8 or 9 year old highly intoxicated… You may think this video is funny, but there”s a point where it becomes serious as alcohol intake can cause serious impalement and damaging to the brain.

News Update (MSN) > Video of a drunk nine-year-old boy at a skate park in New Zealand has sparked outrage in the country and prompted police to condemn those who gave the child alcohol

The video shows a nine-year-old stumbling around with a can of drink in his hand with a group of other children in the North Island town of Hamilton. The person who took the video asked the boy how old he was and what he had been drinking. The boy says he had drunk 18 Cody”s a pre-mixed bourbon and cola drink.

Speaking at an urgent media conference called in the late afternoon of 08 January, local police inspector Greg Nicholls said authorities were notified and clarified that the boy had drunk eight cans of seven percent Codys RTD bourbon and cola and two shots.

Police officers spoke to his mother who was understandably distraught. Mr Nicholls said an investigation was underway into who supplied alcohol to the child. “I see the drunken activities of adults who one would think could make good choices in life,” the inspector said.”But to have a vulnerable young boy consuming alcohol is very appalling.”

He said police were considering laying charges under the sale of alcohol act.The boys father, who has not been named, told the newspaper he was distressed by what had happened. My heart is ripping out at the moment, Im trying to hold it together. Its hard, he said.

He claimed New Zealands Child, Youth and Family services had worked with the family regarding a previous incident.


One of the BIGGEST issues in New Zealand, under-aged drinking.

    Yeah, 9 or 10 was my first drunk. The holidays, no one paying attention the where all the cold duck was going. Didn`t feel so good the next day and didn`t do that again for many a year.

    My guess the kid has older brothers who thought it`d be funny to get him drunk. Bro`s do that stuff.

    What I love about this article... is the ending.

    `I haven`t seen my boys in that long, you know, and to have somebody ring me up stating that they`ve seen my son on YouTube wasted as f***, as it says on there - to me, that`s an unfit mother, right there.` - Father who doesn`t see his son given parental advice. Classy.

    I liked when the cameraman called the little girl a bitch :D

    Who the hell was buddy with a full beard sitting at a skate-park in the middle of the day? Maybe that`s "Aunty"?

    He`s 1/3 aboriginal. That`s nearly middle-aged for them.

    No wait, this is NZ. That`s still about par, regardless of race.

    @ Emmettyville: Wuhl, you hadn`t paid much attention to me lately so I decided it was time to tweak your tail. I miss your swearing.
