Bridgewater Police arrested 41 people at an “out of control” house party near Bridgewater State University’s campus, including hosts Andrew Jucket and Juan Perez, both 21.

Upon arriving at the house around 1 a.m. Sunday, police say they were initially unable to gain entrance, but observed “a large number of people inside of the home yelling and breaking objects.” Once inside, police say the found copious amounts of alcohol, underage partygoers, and several “municipal street and roadway signs on display.”

“While officers were at the scene several of the occupants began to flee through several windows on the first floor,” police spokesperson John Guilfoil said in a release.

Jucket and Perez were charged with keeping a disorderly house, disturbing the peace, furnishing alcohol to persons under 21, and obstruction of justice. Charges vary for the other 39 arrested and include being a minor in possession of alcohol, disturbing the peace, and disorderly conduct.

“This is not the typical result of a police response to a loud party,” Chief Christopher Delmonte said in a release. “The number of people arrested and the charges levied against each of them should underscore the burden a few can place on neighborhoods and the amount of municipal resources required to restore order.  We have developed a comprehensive plan for dealing with these types of situations, which requires tenants and landlords to be held accountable. Our residents should not have to put up with this. It is a quality-of-life issue.”

All those arrested will be arraigned in Brockton District Court this week.
