The State College Police Department is investigating whether the 19-year-old Penn State cheerleader who fell out of a Calder Commons apartment window had alcohol in her system at the time of the fall, according to court documents.
Police have been granted a search warrant to examine all medical records, including blood alcohol content test results, relating to Paige Raque during the time she was treated at Mount Nittany Medical Center after she was admitted for head trauma, according to court documents.
Raque fell from the fifth floor of Calder Commons –– 39 feet –– on the night of Oct. 13, as previously reported.
The warrant states the reason for the warrant is for the possible violation of furnishing alcohol to minors, according to court documents. Police have ruled the incident as accidental, but said it is still under investigation.
Raque remained in critical condition until the end of Oct. 31, when she was transferred to rehabilitation, as previously reported. Raque is currently able to move all her limbs and talk, family spokesman Randy Jepson said.
Jepson also said her rehabilitation is coming along well, but doctors say she has a “long way to go.”
Jepson said he was not aware of the warrant and does not believe the Raque family is aware of it either.
