Indiana State Excise Police officers arrest 65 people for underage drinking at a party on Evansville's north west side.

It happened around midnight Sunday in the 2700 block of Allens Lane. That's just northwest of Diamond and St. Joseph Avenue.

Officers say they received multiple calls complaining about the party. Investigators said they found 65 minors who had been drinking alcohol. One 19-year-old man was jailed for underage drinking and resisting law enforcement. We're told four of the 65 minors were under the age of 18. They were ticketed and released to their parents.

Also this weekend, Indiana State Excise Police officers busted 14 people at the Florida Georgia Line concert at the Ford Center Friday night. Ten minors were arrested on alcohol related charges. Two adults were cited for providing alcohol to minors and one person was jailed for resisting law enforcement, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
