100+ Cited For Alcohol Violations After Two Greenville Parties

More than a hundred people have been charged or cited for alcohol violations after state agents and local authorities raided two house parties in Greenville last week.

In the first case, Alcohol Law Enforcement agents say they cited Fabian Llamas-Guzman and 28 others after getting a noise complaint at the 20-year-old man's apartment on Bellamy Circle on St. Patrick's Day.

Then on Friday, ALE agents say 75 people were cited for various alcohol-related charges and three people charged after a raid on Lewis Street. Michael Supko, Deryck Deblois and Joseph Bratlinger, all 19 years old, were charged with aid and abetting underage persons with possession of alcohol, underage consumption of alcohol, selling alcohol with proper ABC permits and possession for sale of alcohol. At that party agents seized three kegs of beer.

Early last month an ECU fraternity was placed on suspension after ALE agents arrested two people and cited 60 others at the Pi Kappa Phi house.

    To Bruce: Yes, you would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Besides, your scenarios are small game compared to the three kegs at one these parties.

      You are right Kane but it would be nice to be able to share the experience with my kids before they are 21 and almost out of college. You can serve two tours in Iraq and the law won't allow a retired USMC Lt. Col to buy a combat veteran a beer but yet we can hold them accountable to all of the rules of engagement that must be followed during the "fog of war."

    I have a couple of kids my own in college and sure would love to sit down and have a beer with them at the beach. But, Oh gosh, they would get me for contributing to the deliquency of a minor. Sure would like to buy a beer for a young Marine Corporal that is a friend of one of my kids and has served two tours in Iraq before turning 20 but then I would be contributing to the deliquency of a minor. I hope we take away the right to vote from thoses under 21 since we can't trust them to make smart choices. But then again, most of them did vote for Obama. Not a good choice at all.

    lowering age: you have no idea. The drinking rates amongst teens today is about the same as before the 21 year old drinking age law was passed. Guess what? The average age of 1st alcohol use now vs. then is the same or worse! Today the teens just have to do it illegally and without older adult supervision. Nothing has changed but the law. You think about it...

    Lowering the drinking age would be a bad decision. Suddenly, instead of (college aged) 18-20 years obsessed with drinking culture, you will see more 15-17 year olds (HIGH SCHOOLERS) obsessed with turning 18 so they can binge drink themselves stupid. Think about it.

      I agree. Then they start rationalizing about whats the difference between 18 and 17. I will say there are plenty of adults who act like children. But more children act like children than adults and the age limit has to be at some cutoff. 21 actually has some scientific support in terms of alcohol consumption.

    Its college. Thats what college kids do. Maybe if the g-ville PD could keep the thugs from shooting,robbing,beating and raping pepole in the downtown area they wouldnt have to party at "home".

      Back in the early 80's the railroad tracks at the Lamba Chi house was the boundary. Never a problem downtown.

    MADD mom is probably in recovery.

    Why don't we focus on catching real criminals, like that one that shot two people downtown a couple of weeks ago? Did they even find him yet?

    The age needs to go back to 18. You can vote, go to jail, get a credit card, enlist, fight, and die for your country but you can't have beer.

    Let's see... you can join the service and go over seas and get your head blown off, but can't buy a beer!!?? Being 21 doesn't make a person make better decisiions! I know people that are 50 that make lousy decisions!! A person 15 should be able to have a glass of wine with family at meal time, but I don't suggest that that same 15 yr old slam liqour shots until drunk!! Teaching the appropiate way to consume alcohol should be taught, or even food for that matter!! Approaching alcohol in puritanical method does NOT work!! It just encourages kids to abuse alcohol when they get a chance to drink!!!

      Big words don't impress. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. There now you should except what I say because I know big words too. There is actually very real data to support the age 21 restriction. Look it up!

        Wow you've seen a Mary Poppins movie and remember gibberish words. Pray tell where one would find this data, maybe some 700 Club research? Why is it that the US is the only major western nation that has an age where one would drink responsibly i.e.21? The US had prohibition for chrit's sake!! Due to idiots like US-First or is it Mrs. Obama Snake Oil Co.? In fact the incidence of alcohol poisoning at ED has increased since the law has been changed. You can look that up via ED records. Where did you get your data, Readers Digest? Maybe Star magizine??!!

    It's not about saving lives...it's about greed ! Wake up Pitt County residents. Attorney's, ALE , Judges as well as Greenville Police ,all benefit from these underage drinkers. If you think placing someone in jail for such offenses, shame on you! Place them out in the community working, saving our tax dollars in areas where the state has placed budget constraints. Throwing stones at these college kids isn't where the stones should be thrown, again, look at out local and state government. Then look to the right of you, it could be your grand child, your child, niece or nephew. Those of you are fooling yourselves to believe that adults can handle their liquor because they are over 21. Bars downtown should be ban from charging $5.00 for an entry fee and then it's all you can drink on tap. Really? Then it's $2.00, all liquor, on other evening. Really ? This is encouraging binge drinking! I don't care if you are 21 years old, what adult can handle the consumption of such? Must I continue ... My prayer is for all of our youth to be successful and make wise decisions... prayer works, slandering and throwing them under the bus doesn't !

      Good points but they don't make a wrong right. You are arguing about a separate issue as if because it happens busting underage kids for drinking should not happen. You are wrong!
