A group of teenagers home alone on a Friday night — you know the rest.
It happened about 11:30 p.m. on April 18, when Highland Park Department of Public Safety officers busted a party featuring several teenagers at a house in the 4500 block of Lorraine Avenue.
Some fled on foot, but others refused orders to leave, and were escorted out. Police issued citations to four teens, at least three of which are athletes at Highland Park High School, for being minors in possession.
One of the teens was spotted running in the 4700 block of Lomo Alto Drive, one was found in a nearby backyard, and another was discovered hiding in the attic. All three admitted to beer consumption after police got a whiff of their breath.
