Police busted 31 teens — 14 of them juveniles — for underage drinking at a Ridgewood house party early Saturday morning, authorities said. Four of the teens who had been drinking at the Rock Road residence were taken to an area hospital, according to Ridgewood police.
Police issued summonses for underage consumption and possession of alcohol to the 17 teens who were 18 or older, and detained the 14 teens who were under 18 until their parents could pick them up, Lt. William Amoruso said.
Two of the 17 teens charged with underage drinking — an 18-year-old male from East Rutherford and an 18-year-old female from Upper Saddle River — were charged additionally with obstructing the administration of law.
Amoruso said only two of the revelers were Ridgewood residents and that none were from Glen Rock.
Citing incomplete police reports, Amoruso declined to release any further details about the party or what prompted police to respond to the residence just before 1 a.m Saturday. He did say the incident was still under investigation and that additional charges are likely pending.
