Police cite 100 for underage drinking at Delaware party

NEWARK, Del. (AP) -- Police cited 100 people for underage drinking at a house party near the University of Delaware.

Newark police Lt. Andrew Rubin tells news outlets that city police received a complaint Saturday afternoon, and called in campus and county police to help raid the house. Police estimate the backyard held about 170 people, overflowing into the neighboring yard without permission.

Police say most of the tickets were given to University of Delaware students, who can be referred to the university's student conduct system. Two people were under 18 and arrested. They were released to a parent.

The three University of Delaware students who hosted the party have pending charges.

The house was just a block away from the house where 174 underage drinking citations were issued in 2016.
