Party House of the Weekend

202 College Street, Amherst, Sunday morning 

So you have to wonder what Amherst's Founding Fathers (and mothers) would think of lower College Street these days, since obviously when they were proud enough of the scenic main route to name it in honor our proud destination institutes of higher education, Amherst College and UMass, back in the days well before Hampshire College was even founded?

Today much of College Street has transformed into non-owner occupied student rental housing and a magnet for trouble.  Take 202 College Street for instance, a property managed by Eagle Crest Management, AKA Jamie Cherewatti.

Police were called late Saturday night (11:30 PM) because of loud noise for a very large gathering of college aged youth (400-500), including a bonfire in the backyard and at least one of the party goers was only 17.  Yes Dads (and Moms of course), how does that make you feel:  Your 17-year-old daughter pounding down beers at a party of around 500, packed into a house zoned for eight?!

The Bad Boys hosting the gala event failed to cooperate with numerous responding officers, and were arrested.  Since they were so uncooperative they were hit with both Noise and Nuisance House charges.

Colin Francis O'Neil, 10 Lessard Ctr, East Longmeadow, MA, age 21
Jeffery Stowell, 471 Hoppin Hill Ave, No Attleborough, MA, age 21


The party goers at 35 North Whitney Street managed to stand out not only with their loud and obnoxious behavior late Saturday night (11:30 PM), but also distinguished themselves by making racial comments to the Reporting Party looking to quiet down the loud music and noise.

Police stated the party guests were "extremely rude and uncooperative," resulting in the arrests of two residents who provided no help in clearing the party.

Joseph Gervasi, 120 Prospect St, Weymouth, MA, age 22
Joshua Ledin, 96 Randolph St, Weymouth, MA, age 22


219 Amity Street 

Wild women may not get the blues, but in peace loving Amherst if they party hardy and are "extremely uncooperative" with responding Amherst police officers, then they do indeed get arrested.

Arrested for Noise:

Thuong Tran, 114 Hillcrest, Brockton, MA, age 21
Barbara Line, 219 Amity Street, Amherst, MA, age 21
Sonya Belgacem, 6 Brookside Court, Tyngsborough, MA, age 21
Jessica Jorge, 39 Brown Rd, Oxford, MA, age 21

On a more positive note however, police also found a few party locations more willing to cooperate:  

21 Hobart Lane, Friday night 11:35 PM.  Host wanted help clearing out the party and stated he had a good working relationship with "Jack" a private security guard hired by the owners of Gilreath Manor (Lincoln Real Estate).  Police helped clear 100+ guests and gave the host a verbal warning.

480 South Pleasant Street, early Sunday morning 1:00 AM.  Resident requested assistance to help clear 75 guests without incident.  Verbal warning only.

One other thing -- those of you in Amherst complain about loud parties. People just like you, living in Israel, are dealing with rockets coming in and blowing up their houses. Worrying about their children being killed, not just kept awake all night.

If there were rockets coming out of Southwest and people in town being killed and such, what do you think the response would be?

Doesn't this give Israel's Operation Pillar of Cloud a very different light? (The Biblical Reference, BTW, is Exodus 13:21,22) Seriously folks, you are complaining about loud parties, they are having their houses blown up....

You are a very lonely and bitter man Ed.

Ed, as an "educated" person you should know there are many ways a person could have graduated by 17. Even if she hasn't it doesnt mean she has to drive home, many kids come out here to spend the weekend with their college friends.
You really obsess about the damnedest things. Medication could help that.

Ed, I beg you... please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, PLEASE start your own blog. I would read it EVERY DAY, truly. All you local PV crazies should blog; it is a wonderful sight to see these flailing egos faltering under the weight of their own observations.

Larry, call it a hunch - you may find something interesting should you follow up on the 17 year old.

And as to the rest of you, it really is a pity that the Iranian-built rockets aren't landing in Amherst.

So there....

Were these students Amherst College students or just a mix of the usual idiots?

Considering the 30 pack showing to the rear of the car in the lead photo is Busch Light, probably not Amherst College students.
