Excess noise from a loud party in the wee morning hours of Labor Day sent Laurel Sheriff’s officials to Old Hare Road, 12 miles north of London, where they found several intoxicated persons.

Four of those were underage teens, one of which was passed out in a back bedroom. That female was taken to Saint Joseph London by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County due to her high level of intoxication.

The party was at the home of one of the teens, with both the father and the mother present.

Deputy Tyler Morris and Deputy Daniel Grigsby arrested 30-year-old Christopher Jones, of Old Hare Road in East Bernstadt, who is now charged with alcohol intoxication and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor for allowing the teens to consume alcoholic beverages at his home. Also arrested was 34-year-old Mandy Jones, charged with alcohol intoxication and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.

The deputies responded to the call of the loud party around 2 a.m. Monday, and upon arriving at the residence, saw three juvenile females run inside the residence. The girls’ ages ranged from 15 to 18 years old.

Another adult male, 60-year-old Carlos Hill of Redwood Lane in Hyden, was seen wandering around outside the residence, and he was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication.

The other two female juveniles at the residence were called to pick up their daughters who were released into their custody.

Representatives with the Kentucky Cabinet for Families and Children were called to the residence regardng the female juvenile whose parents hosted the party and were arrested.
