WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) — An underage drinking party in Whitewater has led to about 90 arrests.
Whitewater police say that after Thursday's party, they're recommending charges against several residents of the home. A Janesville Gazette report says 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.
And in 2002, 200 youths were arrested for underage drinking in the basement of a Whitewater home.
Police say they focus on preventing large-scale house parties because authorities want to deter underage and binge drinking.
