Boise police issued dozens of citations for underage drinking and other offenses this past Saturday after responding to neighbors' complaints about "party houses."
One of the parties was in the North End, where police said some high school students were drinking vodka out of water bottles. Five of the seven teens had extremely high blood-alcohol levels of 0.20 or higher, with the highest being a 0.215, police said.
Among other parties police responded to Saturday night was a large one involving college-age students near Belmont Street and South Leadville Avenue. Police said they found broken glass and fresh blood on the porch of the home, although there were no serious injuries discovered.
At that party, police said there were several groups of people, some younger than 21, openly carrying cups and bottles of alcohol around the neighborhood. Many had blood-alcohol content of 0.15 or higher.
In all, 39 citations were issued for minor in possession of alcohol, six for open container, three for public urination, one for disorderly house and one for resisting and obstructing officers.
