San Diego deputies break up teenage party
San Diego County sheriff's deputies broke up a party Saturday night in Encinitas involving nearly 200 teenagers and "a large amount of alcohol."

The 18-year-old son of the homeowners will be investigated for possibly violating the "social host" ordinance that can carry a fine of up to $1,000 for allowing underage persons to drink alcohol. The parents of recent La Costa Canyon High School graduate Laurenz Jacobsen were out of town, the Sheriff's Department said.

Two other young men were arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public: 18-year-old Corey Lamb and a 17-year-old who was also arrested for violating curfew and resisting arrest.

Responding to a noise complaint from neighbors, deputies found partygoers throughout the house, some hiding in closets and bathrooms. Alcohol was found on the patio, in the kitchen and in the living room.

Partygoers were told to call their parents to pick them up.
