An Anderson resident received a criminal citation Saturday night after violating the city’s “Social Host” ordinance.

The Anderson Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (P.O.P) responded to the residence on Limestone Ct. after reports of disturbance in the area. When they arrived, many subjects fled the scene on foot.

Underage drinking was verified by Preliminary Alcohol Screening device, and a criminal citation was issued to the person in control of the residence.

Because of their age, the name of that person is not being released at this time.

The revenue that’s received from these types of citations goes toward educational programs on alcohol abuse and prevention in the community.
