BANGOR — Bangor High School officials say they’ve suspended 28 students from extra- and co-curricular activities for two weeks for being at an overnight drinking party last weekend.

Superintendent Betsy Webb said the school’s principal, vice principal and athletic director chose to give out the maximum penalty allowed under school policies.

The Bangor Daily News said the drinking party took place at a camp in Lincoln on Saturday, and that police issued summonses to 31 15- and 16-year-old students for illegal possession of alcohol. One student was issued a summons for marijuana possession.

Police said officers found many of the students sleeping in vehicles and that many of them were very intoxicated.
