A neighbor named Laurie told Schuck she saw some 50 teens scrambling from the home, several stumbling around drunk in the street. Laurie told Schuck she found one passed out in her shed and another throwing up in her driveway.

"How are you allowing all these kids to drink like that in your home, at 16 and 17 years old?" Laurie said. "Kids passed out in the back of our houses. What if I never went into the back yard, and something, God forbid, would've happened to that kid?"

"Party's over. You know, I don't want to see her go to jail. She has kids, and I heard that could possibly happen," Laurie told Schuck.
