One Barrington teenager’s Friday night fun was spoiled after police spotted beer inside his car while it was parked at the high school during the game.

According to police, someone tipped them off that local students had been drinking in a car parked in the lot prior to the game. Officers checked the car and could allegedly see full beers inside the locked vehicle.

They waited in the lot until after the Barrington High School football team finished dismantling Tolman, 41-7, on Friday night. When the owner of the car arrived, he found police standing near his vehicle. Officers searched the inside of the Acura and allegedly found four 12-ounce Bud Lights, two Coors Lights and two Heinekens. They also found a partially consumed bottle of Captain Morgan rum, according to the report.

Officers charged the owner of the car, a 17-year-old Barrington boy, with possession of an alcoholic beverage by an underage person. They also asked him to provide the names of the teenagers who had allegedly consumed some of the alcohol. Police said the boy would not give up any of the names.

According to the report, the boy who was charged had not been drinking.
