A Florida teen has been arrested after throwing a soiree advertised as the "littest homecoming party" of the year and serving alcohol to minors, police said.
An invitation for the blowout made the rounds on social media, inviting people to "Kendall's HOCO After Party" on the night of Oct. 19. The colorful flier featured teen girls posing in front of a city skyline and neon lettering.
But the invitation made its way to some guests the host surely didn't want attending. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to the flier because it advertised "$2 shots" and "$4 mixed drinks." It also told partygoers to "bring your own booze" and "bring your own weed."
"Leave the drama at home," the invitation read. "If you under 16 we aint serving you."
Cops showed up to the listed address in Palm Coast just after midnight on Oct. 20. They "immediately saw a crowd of minors entering and exiting the fenced-in yard, some carrying bottles of alcohol," the sheriff's office said on Facebook.
Cops say when they asked to speak to the homeowner, 18-year-old Kendall Morgan said her grandmother was asleep inside the house. They then woke her up, and she asked them to shut down the shindig.
Police said Morgan initially denied hosting the bash. But "once deputies presented Morgan with evidence showing that she was promoting the underage drinking party and selling alcohol to minors on her personal social media accounts, she admitted to hosting the party," police said.
“We will not tolerate adults contributing to the delinquency of children and promoting underage drinking. If you do, you will go to jail,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “The party was scheduled from 11 p.m. until whenever, but it was promptly shut down at 12:08 a.m. Nothing good occurs when minors, alcohol, ‘weed’ and adults mix.”
Morgan was arrested and charged with "hosting an Open House Party and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Child," police said. While breaking up the party, authorities say they learned Morgan "was currently on juvenile probation," though police did not say what she was on probation for. She was "additionally charged with Violation of Probation."
She is being held without bond at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. She was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday and had not yet entered a plea.
After taking Morgan away, some officers stuck around to make sure the remaining revelers got home safely.
