County police cited 71 people, including 39 juveniles, Saturday after officers broke up a drinking party at Boone's Mobile Estates in Lothian, officials said.
The manager of the trailer park in the 1100 block of Mount Zion-Marlboro Road called police about 9:30 p.m. after he saw juveniles walk out of a trailer, drinks in their hands.
When Officer Clifford Van Hoesen arrived, he talked with Aubrey Bernard Mayhew Jr., 19, who said the trailer belonged to his father and that he had had a few friends over while his father was away, police said. The party got out of hand when people Mr. Mayhew neither invited nor knew showed up and refused to leave, police said.
The Mayhew trailer was "severely packed" and beer and liquor were everywhere, Officer Van Hoesen said in his report. He and three other officers who helped control the scene made sure no one left before being cited.
Sixteen 18-year-olds, 12 19-year-olds and four 20-year-olds were cited. One 14-year-old, three 15-year-olds, six 16-year-olds and 29 17-year-olds were given juvenile citations. They will have juvenile service hearings at 9 a.m. March 17. Twenty-three of the juveniles are girls, 16 are boys. Of the adults cited, 24 are men and eight are women, police said.
