PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies responded to a loud music complaint and found approximately 200 attending a house party with alcohol and marijuana while the parents were away. Nicholas Cody Amador, 19, of 292 Lindon Street, was arrested for the crime.
Deputies responded to the call at 1:19 a.m. Saturday and as he approached the home, the crowd dispersed running in every direction toward the wooded areas, back yard, inside the home, and to their vehicles which lined Lindon Street and Eugene Avenue. From the open back door the deputy could see a large amount of alcoholic beverages; he announced his presence and heard loud yelling and screaming. He entered the home to check on the wellbeing of the occupants and once inside, could smell the odor of marijuana. He then observed about 100 more people; several were juveniles, run out the front door.
Backup units arrived and located Amador who said he was responsible for the party in his parents’ home. Large amounts of cold alcoholic beverages were found on the tables, beds and the floor. Marijuana was also found in the home. Amador’s 16-year-old brother was located in the home, along with a 17-year-old girl found outside that was so impaired she could barely stand. Asked where she got the alcohol she consumed she said she got it inside the home at the party. Amador’s mother was called home and took custody of the younger brother; the intoxicated juvenile girl was released to her mother.
Amador was arrested and charged with Child Neglect, Open House Party, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Alcohol by a Person Under 21, and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. He was transported to the Charlotte County Jail; he posted a $6,500 bond and was released.
