Fort Wayne party ends in sweep of underage drinkers

Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 3:46 pm

Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested 19 people in Fort Wayne this weekend.

On Friday, excise officers arrested 18 people, including 15 for illegal consumption of alcohol, according to an ISP news release. One minor was also arrested for being in a tavern. Two adults were arrested for furnishing alcohol to a minor.

Most of Friday’s arrests came after officers received a loud party complaint in the 5300 block of Ashland. There, officers arrested 14 minors for illegal consumption of alcohol, according to the release.

On Saturday, excise officers arrested one minor for illegal possession of alcohol and one adult for furnishing alcohol to a minor.

Excise officers are the enforcement division of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission and focus on alcohol, tobacco and related laws.
