Apparently a $50 fine means nothing to these kids as they have all been back to the same residence on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Concerned Neighbor, the police reports match what you observed. There was another party on Sunday, and the party host received more charges: http://patch.com/A-wgHw

Concerned neighbor.... Wahh who cares, don't act like you didn't used to drink underage or like you have never broken a law. You're probably the one who called the cops on them, what a joke... Mind your own business, it's kids trying to have fun

I agree with Wahh. Also, how is this news? I want to read about something more eventful than this.

What a waste of taxpayer dollars that could be used to arrest actual criminals.

The problem isn't teens trying to have "fun" it's what happens at the party, after the party. Drunk driving, hurting innocent people, just to name a few. The problem with teens is that you think you're invincible. Trust me when I say this... you will understand when you're a parent.

Written like a truly irresponsible narcissistic punk kid. I hope you're not a product of the Batavia school district. Your poor grammar, punctuation and sentence structure "skills" are more reflective of an inner city third grader. My family and I live in the Prairie Trails subdivision and heard those two parties from a distance of two blocks. As such, I find your "Mind your own business" recommendation hilarious and hypocritical. I can't speak for them, but I'm almost certain the next door neighbors would very much prefer to "mind their own business," but find it nearly impossible with loud, rowdy, drunken, underage teenagers intruding on their reasonable expectations of peace and quiet, especially on a Sunday night - a work night! Do you understand the concept of work? I don't expect you to agree, or even understand. But, unfortunately for you, you'll need to abide by the law nonetheless.

I was there and he didn't break out of the squad car, the back was open. He also didn't run, he went straight back through the front door where the police were trying to apologize to everyone. Officer O'Brien (the arresting officer) is just an ass plain and simple. If he's angry he has to do this as a cop he probably shouldn't be working in Batavia because this will be pretty much all he does in this town.
