BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Boise Police officers say they responded to numerous complaints from neighbors about parties over the weekend that lead to nearly 40 underage drinking citations.
Police say early Saturday evening, they responded to a party in North Boise that involved high school students drinking vodka concealed in water bottles.
Officers say most of the teens had blood alcohol levels above .20.
At another large house party involving college-age students, police say they found broken glass and fresh blood on the porch. Officers say they weren't able to find anyone with a serious injury.
Police say they found several groups of people on the streets near the house, with some of them being under age and walking around with open containers.
"Several of the students told me they were trying to be responsible by not driving but didn't view their binge style drinking that left them stumbling in the road or the public urination we witnessed as irresponsible," said Sgt. Cole Farmer in a press release.
"It takes a community to let our young people know that irresponsible drinking is just not worth the consequences it can cause," said Sgt. Farmer.
In total, Boise Police issued 50 citations and made two arrests.
- Minor In Possession of Alcohol - 39
- Open Container - 6
- Public urination - 3
- Disorderly House - 1
- Resisting and obstructing officers - 1
