SORRENTO, La. (AP) — Ascension Parish sheriff's deputies broke up a party in Sorrento over the weekend and 75 teens were cited or arrested with underage drinking.

Deputies say the teens, who ranged in age from 15 to 18 and whom deputies refused to identify, were partying a home, while the owners were out-of-town.

Sheriff's Maj. Ward Webb says that when deputies arrived, they spotted about 40 vehicles parked outside the home with empty beer cans on the ground. As the deputies began to raid the party, they saw teenagers running into the woods.

Deputies said they are still investigating how the teens obtained the alcohol.
