WAKE FOREST — It was a graduation party that just got out of hand, said town police spokesman Bill Crabtree of an event which sent teens scurrying in all directions early Wednesday morning.
Crabtree said the party started at a home on Haltwhistle Street in the Olde Mill Stream subdivision.
“When the owner found out there was alcohol being consumed, they forced everyone out,” Crabtree said. “So they were kicked out.”
Party-goers went out into the street. Crabtree said initial calls were regarding people speeding down the street and excessive noise after 1 a.m.
“It was a party that got out of control,” he said. “It just got bigger and bigger. When police arrived, everyone was leaving, but when they saw police they scattered.”
Officers were able to apprehend 15-20 party-goers. Some were let go and others were cited for alcohol consumptionand released. According to Crabtree, those younger than 18 were released to their parents.
Because many were juveniles, Lt. B. Mote declined to give the full list of people who were cited until all ages were checked.
However, the town’s police website does show five teens who were charged.
They include, Dylan Michael Henley, 17, 304 Crossington Court, Rolesville; Amanda Dodd McCarl, 17, 2202 Kira Lane, Raleigh; Abbey Owens Lindsey, 18, 211 Kinvara Court; Joshua Stephen Ballentine, 18, 301 Brierroot Court; and Brianna Frances Dimino, 18, 212 Forbes Road, all of Wake Forest.
Any additional people who were charged will be in next week’s edition.
