A student reported that she believes she was involuntarily given a drug in her drink at a fraternity party last Thursday night.
An Auburn University Campus Safety and Security email said the student reported the alleged incident today. She said she did not have any recollection of the night after drinking the beer.
Giving someone a drug without consent is considered aggravated assault and is a felony.
The email advised people to immediately get medical attention if they believe they have been given a date-rape drug. Some date-rape drugs can only be detected from 3-12 hours after consumption, and if at all possible, victims should not urinate before getting to medical attention.
It also said that suspected victims can have friends take them to the East Alabama Medical Center emergency room at all hours or the Auburn University Medical Clinic during daytime hours.
