Wauwatosa police cite more than 30 minors at party

Jan. 29, 2014

More than 30 juveniles were cited and a man was arrested after police broke up a drinking party in the 1700 block of Alta Vista Avenue at 12:19 a.m. Jan. 1.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

Police, following a tip about the party, were let in by girls. The police saw many empty beer cans and alcohol bottles with a sign pointing downstairs, saying "this way to the club."

The one man sitting on a couch upstairs said he had no idea about a party. He was arrested for contributing to delinquency.

Roughly 60 juveniles were found in the glitter- and graffiti-covered basement. One tried escaping by running past police to a back door but was knocked down and handcuffed.

The police sat him in a lawn chair, but as soon as he sat down, he jumped up and started running. He was taken down again and put in the back of a squad car.

One girl vomited while the police handed out citations for underage consumption to the minors.
