There’s getting lit, and then there’s getting so lit that the alcohol level in air registers on Breathalyzer lit. Truthfully, I’m not even sure how that’s possible, but these frat bros in Mayland pulled it off.
According to the Montgomery County Police in Maryland, a fraternity party included so much alcohol consumption that the air inside the house literally registered a positive on a Breathalyzer. The party, billed on Facebook as “Tequila Tuesday Hoy a las 22:00”, was hosted by six members of American University’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.
When police arrived, they found about 70 underage people at the party with some participants being as young as 17.
So much booze was being consumed at last month’s party that Montgomery County Police said the air inside of the building tested positive for alcohol. The home registered a .01% on at least one police department-issued breathalyzer, court documents state. For a person to be considered legally drunk, their blood alcohol level wound have to be .08%.
Police found about 70 underage people at the party, some as young as 17. Most attended AU. A Facebook invite promoted the “Tequila Tuesday” party, which has hosted by six members of AU’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.
Inside, police found a house littered with trash bags, beer cans and liquor bottles, according to court records. The floor was noticeably sticky with spilled alcohol. The windows were covered with insulation, possibly to mute the party inside from the neighbors.
The six American University students who hosted the party — Jeffrey Becker, Ashton Acosta, Anthony Santana, Kevin Alkinburg, Matthew Berger and Tristan Ralph — been charged with 126 counts each of allowing underage possession of alcohol and furnishing alcohol to a minor. All of them are 20 years old ad face fines up to $315,000.
