These reports keep mentioning Foothill College students, but never naming them. Is this because they have not yet been arrested? Or were they arrested, but underage? The only 2 men that have been named are high school students.

Can't wait to here the outcome for the Adults, Pak and Gomes. I hope they spend time in San Quentin. They will be very popular in prison.....Such big guy's until they get in trouble then it's they were just kids, Bla, Bla, Bla......I also heard that this was one of the adults 2nd showing with the cops. Is that true?

It is likely that the District Attorney will not file charges against every single party attendee, but will concentrate their legal efforts against the ones who committed more serious crimes based on the variety of charges listed above ("burglary, vehicle theft, child endangerment, drug sales and providing marijuana to a minor").
The Foothill College students probably were adults at the time of the incident (March 16). Because of that, it is likely that those particular students have not been charged.
Note that they aren't even arresting the underage drinkers. Likely, the police will have a one-on-one discussion with the parents of each and every attendee.
It is clear that the investigation has not yet concluded, so there is still the possibility that some of the Foothill College students (or other adults) could be charged in the future. That said, based on the number of juvenile arrestees, it appears that the majority of the more serious mayhem was caused by underage attendees, not the adults.
