Teen Punished for Giving Ride to Drunken Friend

 A Massachusetts high school senior has lost her volleyball team captaincy and been suspended for five games for what she says was an effort to help a drunken friend.

North Andover High School's Erin Cox says she got a call two weeks ago from a friend at a party who said she was too drunk to drive.

Cox, trying to do the right thing, went to pick up her friend. She got to the party, but so did police.
