What was supposed to be a small gathering quickly escalated into an underage drinking party.

Officers responded to a Brookside Drive residence on April 23 at 11:06 p.m. after receiving a tip about underage drinking. The officers spoke to the resident who said his parents were gone for the weekend and he had only planned on having a small party. When more people showed up, he tried to get them to leave but couldn't, police said.

After asking to search the residence, officers found nine other teens hiding in various rooms and closets in the home, police said. Officers also found a large amount of beer cans, two half-empty bottles of vodka and two trash bags full of beer cans, police said.

Police contacted the parents of all involved and the resident of the home was scheduled to appear in court on May 3.
