RYE, N.Y. -- Rye Police responded to a Central Avenue residence on a report of a large under aged drinking party on Saturday night.
Upon arrival, Rye officers observed multiple minors holding what appeared to be alcoholic beverage with boxes and numerous cans of beer were scattered throughout the kitchen, Rye Police said.
Officers estimated approximately 50 minors in the home. Many fled upon observing the officers, police said.
Damage observed to the home included: spilled liquids, vomit, broken picture frames and a hole in one of the walls. The homeowners were not home at the time.
During the investigation, one of the officers observed a 17-year-old male push another unidentified male.
When the officer attempted to stop the individual’s assaultive behavior, the suspect pushed the officer whereupon he was placed under arrest. The 16-year-old host of the party was issued an Alcoholic Beverage Control Law violation for unlawful possession of an alcoholic beverage, with the intent to consume, by persons under the age of twenty-one years. Both parties appeared to be intoxicated and were ultimately released to the custody of a parent at police headquarters.
Several minors were also detained and identified.
"This is an ongoing investigation into who may have supplied the alcoholic beverages as well as the damage to the home," Rye Police Commissioner Michael C. Corcoran, Jr. said. "The Rye Police Department will take a zero tolerance approach to underaged drinking and towards the hosting of these types of parties. These behaviors violate the law are a recipe for disaster.”
