Dozens of Colby students busted at party
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Waterville police say two Colby College students have been charged with furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol and 90 other people — 81 of them Colby students — have been summoned to court on charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol.
Police say they responded to home at about 11:45 p.m. Saturday to investigate reports of a loud party.
The students who rent the house — 20-year-old Oliver Brown and 21-year-old James Axelrod — were arrested. Brown faces an additional charge because police say he attempted to flee the scene.
Chief Joseph Massey tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/WjZJak ) most party attendees were cooperative, but five covered themselves with insulation in the attic in an attempt to hide.
Colby officials say the students could face disciplinary action.
