90 Arrested For Underage Drinking

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 at 5:22 pm

A party in Whitewater has led to the arrest of 90 people.

Police say they are recommending charges against several residents of the home after Thursday’s party bust. The charges include furnishing alcohol to minors, selling alcohol without a license and failing to prevent underage consumption of alcohol.

This is the second straight year that a large-scale bust occurred just before the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s homecoming. Last year, police arrested 132 people at a house party.

Police say they focus on preventing large-scale house parties because authorities want to deter underage and binge drinking.
