TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Police say an Arizona State University student could be cited for underage drinking after he passed out and was left in a wheelchair in a hospital lobby with a Post-it note to tell doctors that he took part in a drinking competition.

Tempe police say the 19-year-old student was found early Saturday morning in the emergency room lobby of St. Luke's Hospital.

Police say a sticky note on the student's body gave his name and said he'd been drinking and needed help. Hospital staff noticed the student and helped him.

Sgt. Michael Pooley says the student consumed about 20 shots of tequila and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.47 percent, nearly six times the legal limit for driving.

Pooley says any criminal charges against the teen's friends are unlikely.
