Loud Music Complaint Leads To Charges

Cookeville police say a complaint about loud music at a home on Blake Circle this week led them to break up a party in which several people under the age of 21 were gathered to drink.  Officer Chris Melton says he could see several subjects inside the living room as he arrived on the scene, but says once they saw his patrol car they started running to the back of the house.  He says a total of nine people under the age of 21 were located and admitted to drinking alcohol. According to Melton's report, all of them were issued citations for illegal consumption and all of the alcohol in the home was poured out.  The 19-year-old woman who lives at the home was also cited for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
