One bad night for partying Delco teen

As a teenager, you have nights you'll never forget and nights you'll never live down. This tale is of the later variety.

One bad night for partying Delco teen


As a teenager, you have nights you'll never forget and nights you'll never live down. This tale is of the latter variety.

Around 10:16 p.m. on June 12 - a Tuesday - state police responded to reports of a house party on Fairview Avenue in Middletown Township that has spilled out on to the street. When police arrived on scene, the juvenile party goers scattered, police said.

One teen - a 16-year-old boy from Media - was chased behind a house and scaled a fence in his attempts to elude police, but he didn't get far and sustained head injuries when he fought state troopers' attempts to restrain him.

Once in custody in a police cruiser the "extremely intoxicated" teen tried to kick out the rear window of the patrol car, police said. When troopers finally got him in the police station, he vomited and then passed out, according to police.

The boy was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center and his parents were notified of his upstanding behavior.

The teen was charged with resisting arrest, underage drinking and related offenses. Three other teens who were also caught trying to flee the party while "highly intoxicated" were also charged with underage drinking and released to their parents, police said.
