Deputies broke up a beer bash near First St. West and MacArthur just after midnight. The crowd of juvenile attendees scattered, save one 16-year-old lad known to officers for two prior alcohol-related run-ins. It came to light that he had four beers in his backpack. He was rung up on possessing alcohol and violating the minor curfew ordinance, but did receive a free ride home, albeit in a police car. “I learned my lesson,” he told his escort.
