Eight Penn State students have been charged with providing alcohol to minors after a cheerleader at the school was seriously injured when she fell from an apartment window.
Investigators determined that the students "furnished alcoholic beverages to minors who were attending a party" in a Calder Commons apartment on Oct. 13, State College police said.
At that party, 19-year-old Paige Raque fell from a fifth-floor window and was seriously hurt. Authorities determined that the freshman's fall was accidental, police said.
The students charged are 21-year-old Tempest Hourston, 21-year-old Megan Markovitz, 21-year-old Adaire Robinson, 20-year-old Alexandria Hipple, 20-year-old Brooke Piccione, 19-year-old Alyssa Duffy, 19-year-old Julie Hannan and 19-year-old Madeline Miller.
