180 arrested for underage drinking at University of Delaware party

On September 17, 2016, Newark Police with assistance from the University of Delaware Police, Delaware State Police, Middletown Police, and Delaware Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement (D.A.T.E) arrested 180 people for underage consumption of alcohol at a residence, 302 East Park Place, Newark, DE.

Officers from the Newark Police, while conducting a pre-planned controlled party dispersal operation, observed a party at 302 East Park Place with approximately 200 guests attending. Alcohol was seen being freely distributed to the guests, many of which appeared to be under the age of 21. Due to the circumstances, a search warrant was obtained which focused on providing alcohol to minors and underage consumption of alcohol. At about 4 p.m., officers from the multiple agencies executed the search warrant at the residence. Between the different agencies, there were 180 underage consumption of alcohol arrest which included two juvenile arrests. One subject was found unresponsive inside of the residence and had to be transported to Christiana Emergency Room (C.E.R.) via ambulance for an alcohol overdose. The residents of 302 E. Park Place have been identified as well as their affiliation with an unsanctioned fraternity APES. Charges are pending for these residents. All people arrested who are students at the University of Delaware were referred to the UD Office of Student Conduct.

The subject that had been transported to C.E.R. was treated and released.

More details of this investigation will be released later in the week.

Wow. College kids drinking. What a shocker. Good job there aren't any really serious crimes going on that would pull the police away from such a hot bed of criminal activity.
Draft me at 18 to die for my country but deny me a beer.
God bless America.

It'll cost them a few bucks, by that'll be one great story to share after graduation.
180?? They really should have a reunion every year to mark the event.
When they are all legal, of course.

Yes 12:08 something is terribly wrong when you're old enough to carry a gun and kill for your country or die. But you cannot legally have a beer?

The Court system is just a revenue generating machine. They bring in thousands of dollars a day and employ hundreds of lawyers as well.

It's just sick after a while.
