Party House(s) of the Weekend

53 Meadow Street, North Amherst

So as I expected, APD busted #53 Meadow Street for noise violations late Saturday night (see yesterday's report) but they also hit them with the more serious charge of "nuisance house." Rather than simply being handed $300 tickets--times each charge--the responsible parties were arrested, hands cuffed behind their backs and then transported to the police station where the bail bondsman usually shows up in the early AM to process at $40 each all those netted during the long night.

Rivaling the party at Meadow Street but with double the number arrested on the same charges of noise and nuisance house violations, the tenants of 62 Summer Street also merit a note of dubious achievement.

Arrested for Noise and Nuisance House violations:

Timothy Higgins, 7 Norwich Lane, Methuen, MA, age 20
John Coschigano, 7 Apple Tree Road, Bethel, CT, age 20
Adam Dorfman, 65 Wilkeshire Blvd, Randolph, NJ, age 21
Steven Pesapane, 8 Shadetree Ct, Stoney Brook, NY, age 20
Philip Taberner, 1 Bramble Hill Rd, Methuen, MA, age 21
Kevin Miller, 68 Temple Dr, Methuen, MA, age 20

A heartfelt thank you to the APD.

If the owner of such a house wants to get rid of the offending tenants, for cause, how feasible is this? Giving the owner the benefit of the doubt, it's likely that the bad tenants started their lease on 1 September and may have only just shown themselves to be miscreants.

Is the owner's only possible move to start eviction proceedings? I have heard that MA law is rather tenant-friendly in these matters, but the tenants in these cases have (allegedly) committed real legal offenses...

I second the thanks to the APD, and also thank Larry for keeping attention on this issue.

The ones that concern me most Dave, and I'm sure the neighbors as well, are the repeat offenders who just don't seem to care.

A lot of these kids are under 21.. I'm SURE no booze was being consumed on site (HA!!) come no charges other than municipal ordinance violations were filed? There are laws that exist with some teeth other than a paltry fine....

Is anyone passing out cookies to APD?

They could probably use some Red Bull.

There's always two sides to every story. Where is it reported that the tenants of this household attempted to keep the capacity and noise down all night? With clear access from the street to the backyard random party-goers and street stragglers alike make a dead bolt for the back yard. These party crashers usually ignore the "who do you know here?" or "We're sorry but we can't let anymore people in the backyard," said by the tenants who stand in their driveway all night long. In the past the same tenants have called the police for help when they were outnumbered by the people swarming to their house.

I think it is also respectable that the house is always clean. There are never beer cans or trash all over the yard like other houses on Meadow Street and around campus. Bottles, cardboard, and trash are always separated into their correct receptacles. And I don't think that a house of college students who have introduced themselves to their neighbors and maintained a friendly relationship are that much of a concern. What concerns me more is how these tenants treated rudely (understatement) by police officers who watched them clear out their party before the cops stepped in and busted it.

No on intends to undermine or disrespect APD, just tell two sides to a misinterpreted story.

Yeah, APD must also have "misinterpreted" the rocks and bottles tossed their way at the Meadow Street Riot on September 9th.

Cowardly Anon Nitwit.

Ironically there was no party throw at this house first weekend back or at any of the first few houses on the street. It was unfortunate that there were so many people in the streets but many of them were fleeing the party that was broekn up down the street closer to 116. This house had no part at all in the September 9th riot or in rock/bottle throwing. I think "nitwit" was a bit hasty but I'll give you points for originality.
