Would you tell her parents?

My son just brought his friend home. I guess she called him and said she had acted stupidly today while hiking with some friends and got really drunk. She really just needed some time to sober up before she went home and she didnt want to be driving her car. I am kind of torn on what to do. On one hand I try to think as ONLY a mother and think I should tell them ASAP but on the other hand I think of it as a human and how we all make mistakes. If it was my own daughter I don't wouldnt be very angry if she called and said "i fucked up, i need help". I just dont know. 

I am just looking for opinions not to be bashed. I have never been in a situation.

ETA: she is 17

I wouldn't tell. She was being at least somewhat responsible and not wanting to drive while drunk. How old is she?

If your son had called her and went to her parents' house to sober up, would you want her mother to tell you?

Let her sober up, then explain to her that you're not happy about the situation and this will be the ONLY time your son goes and saves her from a bad choice she made. Then tell her hangovers are a bitch. Lol

I would prefer my son called me if he was in that situation instead of a friend.
