Air tests positive for alcohol after police shutdown frat party

23 December 2017

Six college students are facing charges after a large house party held in Bethesda, Md., got out of hand, leading to a visit from the cops.

The guests were mostly students from American University and had arrived for an event named "Tequila Tuesday".

Police say there was so much alcohol consumed at the party, that the air inside of the home tested positive for booze. As WJLA reported, officers knocked on the door and were eventually invited in by the building's tenants.

And in the heat of the insane frat party, officers realized the air in the house was showing up on their breathalyzers at.01, according to KFVS12.

As about 70 people emerged from the house, according to TV station WJZ, officers processed the partygoers with Breathalyzers.

WJLA reported eight people locked themselves in a bathroom and another jumped out a window to avoid the police. Trash bags and insulation were covering the windows. The floor was noticeably sticky with spilled alcohol.

Six of the home's occupants - Jeffrey Becker, Ashton Acosta, Anthony Santana, Kevin Alkinburg, Matthew Berger and Tristan Ralph - were charged with 126 counts allowing underage possession of alcohol and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

They face fines of up to $315,000.

Officers breathalysed party goers outside the house, all were between 17 and 20-years-old - which is underage by USA laws.
