EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — School is officially back in session at the University of Oregon and so are the parties.

The Register-Guard reports that Eugene police issued the first unruly-gathering citation of the fall on Saturday. In all, 10 citations were issued after a party became too noisy in addition to seven warnings.

Officers were first called to the residence where the party was held on Friday after a neighbor complained of the noise. The occupants were warned to keep it down, but officers had to return early Saturday to issue the citations.

The hosts of the party were cited for violating Eugene’s unruly-gathering ordinance, which was adopted in May 2013 and holds hosts criminally responsible for hosting, organizing and allowing an unruly event or social gathering.
