A house party hosted by a 16-year-old led to sev­eral peo­ple be­ing ar­rested Satur­day.

A re­port from the Covington Po­lice Depart­ment said of­fi­cers re­sponded to a home at Jef­fer­son Vil­lage Boule­vard, af­ter re­ceiv­ing com­plaints of loud noise, im­prop­erly parked ve­hi­cles and ju­ve­nile prob­lems com­ing from a house in the sub­di­vi­sion.

CPD Capt. Ken Mal­com said of­fi­cers ar­rived to the area and mon­i­tored the traf­fic sit­u­a­tion, but wit­nessed an uniden­ti­fied in­di­vid­ual run­ning out of the house and a male scream­ing at an­other fe­male, which he said ap­peared to be a do­mes­tic dis­pute.

“One of the of­fi­cers went up and at­tempted to make con­tact with them (the male and fe­male). When they did, they asked the in­di­vid­u­als to come to­wards of­fi­cers,” Mal­com said. “(The man) re­fused and he started run­ning back to­wards the house. The of­fi­cer kept giv­ing ver­bal com­mands for him to stop and come to­wards him.”

“As he was ap­proach­ing the house, he was alert­ing peo­ple to come in­side the house and that the po­lice were there.”

Mal­com said a num­ber of peo­ple were in the home, close to 100. He said of­fi­cers were able to make en­try into the house and that sev­eral peo­ple started run­ning out the back, jump­ing off the back deck.

Of­fi­cers were able to speak with a 16-year-old male at the house, who Mal­com said lived at the home and hosted the party.

“He (the 16-year-old) was in­ter­viewed and ob­vi­ously he was in­tox­i­cated. He was charged with con­sump­tion of al­co­hol by a mi­nor,” Mal­com said.

He added that an­other 16-year-old male was charged with pos­ses­sion of a firearm, as he tried to con­ceal a loaded pis­tol.

Mal­com said other ar­rests in­cluded Wil­liam J. Wyn­ter, 20 of Covington for pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana; a David Cal­houn, 19, of Covington and Ashely Wise, 20, of Covington, who were the renters of the home, were charged with dis­or­derly house.

Mon­trez Gor­don, 18, of Covington, was charged with the ob­struc­tion of an of­fi­cer.
