BETHESDA, Md. — There was so much booze drinking at a home where a college fraternity party was held that the air inside the home tested positive for alcohol.

WJLA reports that police were called about the party attended mostly by American University students after residents complained of the noise. When the officers entered the home, they saw windows covered with insulation bags, and beer cans and liquor bottles littered throughout the house. 

The ambient air inside the home registered a .01 on a department-issued breathalyzer, according to court documents.

The home’s six residents, who are members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s AU Chapter, were each charged with 126 counts of allowing underage possession of alcohol and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

They each face up to $315,000 in fines.
