Police on Saturday night arrested 50-year-old New Canaan after breaking up what appeared to be a large underage drinking party at her house.
At about 11:32 p.m. on Nov. 9, officers were dispatched to an Oenoke Lane residence on a complaint of loud noise coming from it, according to a police report.
Arriving officers saw about 30 to 40 teens running away, the report said.
The police saw empty beer cans outside the house, it said.
They found the woman inside the property’s guest house and saw a ping pong table with plastic cups on it, as well as numerous alcohol containers in the guest house, police said.
Police charged the woman with failure to halt possession of alcohol by a minor, a misdemeanor offense. The law applies to those who, “knowing that any minor possesses alcoholic liquor … in [a] dwelling unit … fail to make reasonable efforts to halt such possession.”
She was released after promising to appear Nov. 21 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
