Fight at Football Game Leads to Arrest of Buford Teen on Charge of Underage Drinking

Police called after school resource officer broke up fight and determined student had been drinking.

A fight at the Aug. 31 Mill Creek versus Dacula football game led to the arrest of a Buford teen on a charge of underage consumption of alcohol.

Gwinnett County Police were called to the stadium after a school administrator broke up a fight between Shamiek Johnson, 17, and another high school student. The school resource officer also responded to the scene and, after noticing an odor of alcoholic beverage on Johnson’s breath, used an alco sensor to determine if the teen, who is listed in the police report as a MCHS student, had been drinking. According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the alco sensor reading was .096.

The GCPD officer placed Johnson under arrest for underage consumption of alcohol. While enroute to the jail, Johnson reportedly advised the officer that he had been drinking beer and that his parents knew he had been drinking.

Johnson was released the following day on a $135 bond.
