SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - A young woman and two teens were arrested in connection with an underage drinking party in Spring Valley, sheriff's officials said Saturday.
Deputies were called out to the loud party in the 700 block of Sacramento Avenue, near Jamacha Boulevard, about 11:25 p.m. Friday. About 50 people were in a house and on a patio, along with a large amount of alcohol, according to department news release.
Deputies shut down the party and arrested Krista Marie Dedrick, 18, for suspicion of violating the social host ordinance in San Diego County, according to sheriff's Sgt. Trinidad Tejeda and Deputy Santiesteban. She told deputies she was house sitting for her parents and allowed friends to host the party at their residence, they said.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly violating curfew and a 16-year-old girl was arrested for suspicion of being drunk in public, Tejeda and Santiesteban said.
Social host violation can carry up to a $1,000 fine for a first offense and subsequent violations could be fined up to $2,000, up to 32 hours of community service or up to 6 month in jail. Violators could also be held liable for injuries resulting from a minor guest's negligence and for the cost of responding law enforcement services, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
