Eight underage revelers were arrested Sunday night at Kalahari Resorts after security staff stumbled on a large drinking party.
Matthew Canon, 20, Elyria; Tristan Taliano, 18, Amherst; Mark Matos, 20, Amherst; Thomas Zarlinga, 18, Elyria; Mark Ferber, 20, Amherst; two girls, both 17, Amherst, were each charged with underage consumption. One of the Amherst girls was also charged with obstruction.
Security guards came across loud music from one of the resort’s rooms at about 8:30 p.m. and called Erie County deputies to the scene, according to a deputy’s report.
Deputies found numerous Bud Light bottles strewn around the room and several more full bottles stashed in the refrigerator, the report said. One girl gave deputies a false birthdate, prompting her additional obstruction charge.
Another of the group’s friends who was found to be sober took responsibility for all of the adults and they were released at the scene.
The two 17-year-old girls were taken to the Erie County Detention Home.
