An adult who hosted an underage drinking party Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday morning might face charges from Geneva police.
Geneva police Cmdr. Julie Nash said an investigation is pending regarding the owner of a home in the 500 block of Eighth Street, where the party took place.
Police responded to a noise complaint at the home at around 12:53 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 9, when they discovered four youths who had been drinking. Edward Parker, James Clark and Andrew White, all 18 years old, were cited under city ordinance for illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. The fourth is a 17-year-old male who was cited as a minor.
As of Wednesday morning, officials were awaiting a decision regarding whether the adult would be charged and, if so, what the charge might be.
