Three boys were taken by ambulance to Moab Regional Hospital after law enforcement officers feared they were so intoxicated they might have been poisoned by alcohol. Two men were charged following the incident that took place Sunday at the end of Hell’s Revenge trail.
Jordan Munoz-Luquin, 22, and 28-year-old Jose Guadalupe Herrera Ramirez were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and furnishing alcohol to the boys, knowing they were minors.
A sheriff’s deputy and Bureau of Land Management ranger responded to the popular 4X4 trail at about 4:30 p.m. following a call of intoxicated people riding RZRs. After stopping one of the parties in a RZR and spotting a can of alcohol in a cupholder next to a juvenile — and determining the boy needed to be taken to the hospital — a report of a possible medical incident led the officers to the parking lot, where they found an “extremely intoxicated” boy complaining that he fell and hit his head.
That boy and another were also deemed to be dangerously intoxicated and were taken to MRH. Munoz and Herrera were questioned and the men reportedly acknowledged they knew their companions were minors.
