AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Four local high school baseball players have been suspended for allegedly drinking on a school bus.
Authorities say one Lakeside High School student got so sick, he threw up on the bus while the team was heading home from Effingham County late Friday night.
Some of the players confessed to drinking after the coach approached them about it.
Along with the suspensions, the four players will go before a hearing officer next week.
Officials are now investigating the underage drinking and who may have supplied the alcohol to the minors.
