San Marcos sisters cited for teen party with alcohol, marijuana
Two young women in San Marcos in northern San Diego County have been cited for hosting a party at their parents' home that was attended by nearly 100 teenagers and where drinking and marijuana use was rampant, the Sheriff's Department said.
The two sisters, Kelsie Dawn Falk, 18, and Kyle Lauren Falk, 20, were cited on suspicion of violating the city's social host ordinance that can bring a fine up to $1,000 for a first offense. The ordinance is meant to hold adults responsible for parties at which minors are allowed to drink.
When deputies arrived Sunday after receiving a noise complaint from neighbors, they found cars blocking emergency access, a large quantity of beer and liquor bottles, marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia, according to Lt. Jeff Maxin.
The sisters' parents were out of town, Maxin said. Teenagers were in the driveway, backyard and various rooms in the house.
One partygoer was passed out; others were playing "beer pong," a drinking game, according to the Sheriff's Department.
