16 Arrested At 2nd Drinking Party Of The Week

Saturday, June 2, 2012

Calls received by the Hamilton County 911 center early Saturday morning around 3:11 a.m. reporting a loud party taking place at 11212 London Lane in Apison resulted in 16 being charged with either drinking under age or contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  

It was the second mass arrest of teens at a large drinking party in Hamilton County this week. The first was on Signal Mountain.

Ten adults under the age of 21 were charged with drinking under age, four adults over the age of 21 were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and two female juveniles were charged with drinking under age. All charged were either transported to the Hamilton County Jail or the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.

Sheriff's officials said, "The chances of a more serious outcome such as injury or death could occur when the decision is made to drink alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. Statistics show that the summer months are the most dangerous time for young adults and teens in relation to drinking, as underage drinking can result in tragedy."

Those arrested were Kevin Cardenas, 18, of 8108 Gladys Lane; Adam Gilbreath, 21, of 7219 Igou Gap Road; Bryan Hullander, 19, of 11212 London Lane in Apison; John Zuback, 22, of 1829 Clayton Dr.; Steven Lee, 19, of 8207 Carriage Crossing in East Brainerd; James McCormick, 19, of 11212 London Lane in Apison; Cody Moore, 21, of 8135 Graham Road; Caleb McKissick, 23, of 4759 Gates Lane in Apison; Jacob Tallent, 18, of 2414 Hickory Ridge Dr.:Joshua Moore, 21, of 5675 Hunter Road; Christian Royse, 18, of 1511 Rebecca Dr., Apt.
