Deputies arrested 10 people for underage drinking and the adult homeowner who they found sleeping upstairs during the party early New Year’s Day.

Erie County Sheriff's officials received a call about several people entering a vacant trailer in the 7500 block of Wahl Road at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

When they arrived, they saw several people running from the unoccupied trailer behind a house. One man fell and hit the side of the house. The others finally stopped running and complied with the deputies’ orders. All admitted they’d been drinking and weren’t yet 21, according to the report.

The man who fell, 20-year-old Anthony Frisbee, had visible injuries to his face and was incoherent, unable to answer any questions, according to the report. He was taken to the emergency room at Firelands Regional Medical Center and issued a summons.

The others were given portable breath tests.

After obtaining a search warrant for the house, deputies entered the house and found more people drinking., as well as a large beer pong table in the dining room.

They arrested the homeowner, Walter Neill, 42, of Vickery for criminal trespassing, obstructing official business and permitting underage consumption.

Also arrested for underage consumption were Zachariah Lewis, 19, 3700 block Ronald Drive, Castalia; Frederick Bodner, 19, 4200 block Maple Ave., Castalia; Joshua Johnson, 20, 7500 block Wahl Road, Vickery; Santana Trevino, 19, 300 block Birchwood Drive, Sandusky; Ryan Marshall, 19, 4900 block Tiffin Ave., Bryce Dix, 20, 100 block Brailey St., Castalia; and three 16-year-olds.

The 16-year-olds were later released to their guardians.

Johnson was later served with warrants for failing to pay fines and failure to appear in court on previous charges of underage consumption and disorderly conduct while intoxicated.
