Bethesda underage drinking party draws 125, sends 1 to hospital
One attendee ended up at Sibley Hospital for what was described in scanner reports as a "stabbing." But Montgomery County Police 2nd District Commander Captain David Falcinelli said yesterday the victim's injuries were only superficial, and resulted from a dispute with another student.
Montgomery County Police have made stopping underage drinking parties a priority. Efforts have been stepped up further after recent drinking-and-driving-related deaths of students who had attended such parties. A legislative effort is also underway in Annapolis to crack down on underage drinking.
Falcinelli said he has already contacted American University officials regarding yesterday morning's incident.
