Big Teen Drinking Party Busted in Lyon Park

Police car (file photo)Police broke up a big teen drinking party in Lyon Park over the weekend.

Officers responded to a home on the 3100 block of 1st Street N. just before midnight on Friday, after police received a noise complaint, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. They found numerous teens, as young as 16 but mostly 18 and 19, drinking beer and liquor.

“Officers responded to the location for a large party and discovered 28 under-aged individuals drinking alcohol,” Sternbeck said.

In all, police issued 28 citations to party-goers. Three teens were released without charge. Several people tried to flee, Sternbeck said, but none threw beer bottles at the officers, as allegedly happened during a teen drinking bust in the Williamsburg neighborhood in April.

No one required medical treatment for intoxication, said Sternbeck. Police investigating the party found an adult “in the upstairs portion of the residence.” It’s unclear if the adult knew about the under-age drinking that was allegedly taking place.
