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.
