Parties draw noise complaints

On the night of August 14 around 10 p.m., police were called to a party on Maxwelton Road. According to the Department, officers observed several open alcoholic beverage containers on a table in front of the residence. An 18-year old stated that he lived at the residence. Several 17-year olds were present by invitation. The resident said his mother was away.

Police contacted the mother, who told officers she gave her son permission to have friends over but was unaware of the alcohol. The mother asked officers if the guests could remain for the night.

Officers contacted the parents of the juveniles. According to the log, “every parent PPD contacted were either out of state or too far from the city of Piedmont.” The parents gave consent for their children to stay the night. Officers supervised the pouring out of all the alcoholic beverages and made repeated checks throughout the night.

Later that same night, a complaint about a party on Oakland Avenue came in. The complaint said it was a loud party with lots of yelling and fireworks. Officers found a small group sitting outside and the group took the party inside.

  1. This is irresponsible parenting! Not one single parent in the area? A bunch of underage teens? That is a sure recipe for trouble. Out of state or out of the area? There could have been AT LEAST one parent close by and on-call for any possible disaster or emergency. Kids are too young to know how to handle alcohol and anyone of them could have had an emergency situation involving overindulgence by illness or accidents.
    I find this amazing that parents do not care enough about the safety of their own children.
