Alcohol...in the end, there is always the alcohol. When you're searching for embarrassing and pathetic behavior, start with the drinkers.

Nothing wrong with drinkers... it's the irresponsible drinkers you need to worry about.

well, What the ????? They are not even 21 years and how could they be intoxicated. First, They should charge whoever provided these 2 bums with alcohol. And I don't even a mention about underage drinking. Must be some kind of coverup by the police because the involved party must be filthy rich and powerful and/or influential with the city PD.

@grumpyold: What on EARTH are you going on about? Kids throwing parties while their parents are away is nothing new. And kids getting alcohol is also nothing new. Could have been in the parent's house already, or someone had an older sibling buy it, so someone over 21 attending bought it, or a million other reasons, and no one will admit it. So police get called, and parent gets a call and calls police to toss them out, which they do since they already have local complaints. This is all perfectly normal and no cover up needed. So how does ANY of this need someone to be filthy rich or influential?

This sort of thing has happened ever since I can personally remember: Parents leave, kids throw a party, gets outta hand, gets broken up, kid grounded.
That's how it usually goes. This instance added: Mouth off drunkenly to cops and shove up against them.
That's why we're reading about it today. These are little boys trying to play grown up. Fail.

Thanks for the catch, Brendan. It happened on July 31. The article has been amended.

For a second I thought that was a photo of one of the suspects up there on the right. As an aside - anyone else find these mug shots in these online ads disturbing and distracting? The photos are scary! In this case misleading too.
