Party hearty, pay the price
Sometimes partying just doesn’t pay, especially when the booze is flowing and the crowd gets loud enough to compel neighbors to call the cops. That was the case over the weekend when police in Fayetteville arrested 13 underage drinkers at a late night party on Williamsburg Way.
Fayetteville Police at 1:10 a.m. Sunday morning received a call about a loud party at a Williamsburg Way residence, said department spokesperson Steve Crawshaw. Once at the scene, officers reported that some in the residence ran out of the house, onto the rear deck and into the back yard where other officers stopped them, Crawshaw said.
Officers determined that a number of underage partygoers had been drinking, said Crawshaw. Though nearly all the 13 people arrested were ages 19-20, there were two juveniles present ages 15 and 16, according to police reports.
Crawshaw said there was an undetermined number of others present in the residence when police arrived. There was no infraction and they were not charged, he said.
Crawshaw said the owners of the home were not present at the time of the incident.
