PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Despite a social media warning from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the organizer of a large party with underage drinking held the event and was arrested.
Earlier Friday, the sheriff’s office received tips about the planned party using the hashtag #ProjectNat. Authorities said they contacted the organizer, Nathaniel Gray, and told him of the possible consequences.
The party was found around 9:30 p.m. at Packsaddle Park, officials said in a release. There was a stage, a bonfire, alcohol and a number of partiers.
Gray, 19, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, offensive littering, giving alcohol to minors and providing a place for minors to drink alcohol.
Officials said Gray may also get a bill from the Gates Fire Department for putting out the fire.
