Forty-one people were arrested at an “out of control house party” in Bridgewater early Sunday morning, according to police.
Officers got a 911 call around 1 a.m. about a disturbance on Maple Avenue. Upon arrival, police said, they saw several people outside of a home and heard yelling and shattering glass from inside.
When officers entered the home, they allegedly saw underage partygoers in possession of alcohol. Several of those in attendance fled through first-floor windows in the presence of the officers, police said.
The tenants of the home, Juan Perez, 21, of Everett and Andrew Jucket, 21, of Bridgewater, were arrested and charged with keeping a disorderly house, disturbing the peace, furnishing alcohol to persons under 21, and obstruction of justice, according to police.
The other 39 people who were arrested face a variety of charges. Some are accused of being a minor in possession of alcohol, disturbing the peace, and disorderly conduct.
Bridgewater Police Chief Christopher Delmonte said the case “is not the typical result of a police response to a loud party.”
“The number of people arrested and the charges levied against each of them should underscore the burden a few can place on neighborhoods and the amount of municipal resources required to restore order,” he said in a statement.
“Our residents should not have to put up with this,” he added. “It is a quality-of-life issue.”
All 41 people are expected to be arraigned in Brockton District Court this week.
