DARIEN, Conn. -- A house party went bad after uninvited guests crashed it, Darien Police said.

The 17-year-old host of the party invited some friends to have a party at the Mansfield Avenue home on Oct. 29 while the teen's parents were out. However dozens of uninvited guests arrived causing some minor damage to the home but leaving beer cans, drinking cups and some liquor bottles strewn throughout the home and on the grounds, police said.

The teen called an adult to come over and break up the party and police were also alerted by calls about a large party going on. When police did arrive teens and young people - estimated to be as much as about 100 - were seen scattering but police were able to find 10 teens in the residence and called their parents to pick them up, police said.

The home reeked of alcohol, police said, and an empty water bong with some marijuana residue was found in a bedroom. The floors were sticky with spilled beer and a table was set up in the basement to play beer pong, police said.

The teen's mother arrived home after police showed up and said she knew her child was going to throw a party, but she believed alcohol would not be consumed. The teen was issued a summons for supplying alcohol to minors and will appear in Juvenile Court.
