MELROSE, Minn. (KNSI) Stearns County sheriff's deputies handed out a dozen citations to minors for underage drinking after they were called to a house party in Grove Township at about 12:30 am on New Year's Day.
Officers were alerted to the party after a juvenile male had been brought to the Melrose Hospital. He was passed out due to the high amount of alcohol he had consumed.
Deputies went to the party on Overton Road, but no one would answer the door.
Several people locked themselves inside the home, and some ran from the scene on foot into sub-zero weather.
Deputies located three minors who fled the residence. They were taken to the Melrose Hospital to be treated for possible cold-weather injuries.
Deputies were eventually allowed into the home with the consent of the home owner and the citations were issued.
