Nelson County Sheriff David Brooks says his deputies broke up what could have been a dangerous alcohol-infused teenage party Friday.
A Project X party was planned for the Faber area Friday night.
Project X is a movie about a high school party that rages out of control. Arrests have been made across the country as young people have tried to emulate the movie.
More than 2,000 teens and young adults responded on Facebook that they were going to attend the party in Faber.
Sheriff Brooks says a number of summonses were issued for the party planners for underage possession of alcohol and possession of narcotics.
NELSON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE PRESS RELEASE Project X VA Edition Party
A planned Project X party in the Faber area was stopped before it started last night, August 3, 2012. Over 2000 teens and young adults responded on Facebook that they were planning on attending. Arrests have been made across the United States as young people have tried to emulate "Project X," a new film about a high school house party that rages out of control.
The event sponsor (Carlos Kirk of CGK3 ProductionsCGK3 Records based in Indianapolis, IN) and event planners (some being local Nelson residents) did not obtain the proper documents to hold the event and according to the landowner were deceitful about why the property was rented. Even though they advertised the planned event on Facebook, you needed to provide a cell phone number to get the exact location of the party. One person planning to attend posted on Facebook that the address was being guarded, "so the Pigs don't find out the location and try to shut it down before it gets started".
Summonses were issued on some of the party planners for underage possession of alcohol and possession of narcotics.
We were pleased to be able to intervene before this party got started as we feel this could have quickly gotten out of control as it has in other locations.
