More than 20 teens were given citations for possessing or drinking alcohol after authorities responded Sunday to call about a pasture party in Hallsville.
Jay Webb, Harrison County Sheriff's Office spokesman, said 22 citations were issued shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday after someone called dispatch complaining about a loud party in the 2000 block of Country Club Road in Hallsville.
Sheriff's deputies and officers with the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the call where they found about 65 teenagers having a party. Most of the teens who were at the party live in Hallsville, Webb said.
After speaking with teenagers and administering breath tests, the officers determined some of the teens were in possession of alcohol while others were intoxicated, Webb said.
The teenagers were released to their parents. No charges were filed for trespassing.
The pasture's owners lived nearby but were unaware of the party, Webb said.
