Party House of the Weekend (stunning)


While not exactly "One riot, one Texas Ranger" the Amherst Police Department still did an outstanding job quelling in about a half-hour a loud drunken party of 500 individuals all crammed into a one-family house at 51 North East Street.

Officers on the scene issued three "responsible" tenants two $300 bylaw violation tickets each ($1,800 total) one for Nuisance, one for Noise; and just for good measure they arrested all three as well--thus costing the perps a few more bucks for the bail bondsman to make his midnight rounds.

One even had in his possession an illegal stun gun. I guess the shocks on him.

According to Police Narrative:

Approximately 500 people cleared from residence with loud voices and DJ equipment. Many of the guests refused to leave and hid in various rooms inside the residence while continuing to party. Residence had a large amount of trash (cans/bottles) in the yard and three males were observed actively urinating in the backyard. One individual was identified as being a minor in possession of alcohol. Residents placed under arrest for Unlawful Noise and Nuisance House.

Thanks for blogging on these issues.

No problem.

I'm sure the Gazette will get around to mentioning this particular sorry episode.

My thanks to you as well, Larry.

You're welcome.

I suppose if I really wanted to be clever I would try to find the parent or guardian's email-address out there in eastern Massachusetts and send them the hotlink.

Although these three kids may have to fess up anyway considering they were arrested and hit with a $600 fine each.

Maybe that will be their Christmas present this year.

Sooner or later you will find a parent who takes his son's side and not only will the town be sued but so will you Larry....

Do not forget that a lot of these parents were UM students themselves in the 1970s and, well, ....

Bring 'em on. That would more than make my day (not to mention the AP wire).

What would the town and/or Larry be sued for exactly? Enforcing a town ordinance and reporting on a crime? I'm no lawyer, but I don't think there would be much to that suit.

Angry parents of out-of-control UMass partiers can sue Larry and the Town of Amherst.

The problems with UMass rowdyism are due to the fact that Amherst residents do not love the students enough.

Yes, only in the comments at this blog can you find insights like these.

I have always believed that the arrests for drunkeness (and other student arrests) should be publicized in their local home town newspaper, such as the Patriot Ledger or the Lowell Sun.

It appears that there will be a lot of community service hours that need to be served. Maybe we could get them to work with Isaac Ben Ezra ...

I agree with Anon. November 23, 2010 7:37 AM. It would be great to publish this stuff in the offenders local hometown paper. Maybe some good old shame on the family would help. Couldn't hurt.

LarryK4 said...

Yeah (former) Chief Scherpa got so fed up a few years back he threatened to fax the police arrest logs to the kids hometown papers.

But now we have the Internet...

They should be published in their hometown papers, maybe then will their parents and themselves wake up and stop the abuse!

I wonder if this house was owned/rented by the famous D.H. Jones of Amherst? LOL

D.H. Jones is covered with UMASS feces, They are the biggest rentals in this town and don't give a dookie about anyone who lives here, I.E. Taxpayers....they will screw you at every chance they get!

Larry, I have to be careful what I say, but the town is in violation of an explicit guideline memo from the Criminal Offender (CORI) Board and yes, they are likely to get sued for it. Sued for a LOT of money and more than I think there is in insurance.

That will get interesting....

Biggest piece of shit state in this country, when they go beyond the protected "whistle blowers" to the new state "you can't say damned thing against us or you will be sued and lose your job" MOFO's

uninformed local said...

Larry you make the mistake of believing that shame would work. If the police reports are printed in the kid's hometown papers and I live in one of those towns, my reaction might be 'Hey I'm glad they're 80 miles away raising hell in Amherst instead of here.' That might even be my response if I was the parent!

'Actively urinating.' What an odd turn of phrase...
