Severna Park

Anne Arundel police on Monday reported breaking up an underage drinking party at a Severna Park residence, where nearly two dozen juveniles were charged, including one that police said fell out of a second story window as he attempted to avoid detection.

It marked the third time in four months that police had been called to the residence on the 100 block of Southway Drive in Severna Park, police said.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday night at around 9 p.m., when officers said that upon arrival they saw juveniles leaving the residence with beer cans in hand. Upon entering the residence, officers said they saw more juveniles consuming alcohol. Some of the juveniles fled the residence but additional officers were called and juveniles were detained. All of the juveniles who had alcohol in their possession were under the legal drinking age, police said.

The juvenile who fled out of a second story window was uninjured and was brought in with the rest of the subjects, police said. The homeowner was not there at the time, police said.

In all, 22 male and female juveniles between ages 14 and 17 were cited for violating underage liquor laws, police said. Parents were notified, and the juveniles were kept at the residence until parents arrived due to their various states of intoxication, police said.
