Dumb Underage Drinkers Out Themselves to Cops With Facebook Invite

Two Nebraska youngsters who used Facebook to hype an unsupervised house party as "History Making," instead made headlines when police officers busted the underage fiesta. Christopher Phelan, 22, and his sister Cassandra, 19, promoted the soiree, which was expected to draw hundreds of teen revelers and promised to feature a DJ, a photographer, six kegs of beer, and plenty of booze.

Given a heads-up by either concerned residents or uninvited nerds, police noticed Facebook RSVPs from at least 46 minors and decided to send in an undercover officer with two underage moles. Approximately 30 minutes after the rager's commencement, and after gaining confirmation of underage drinking from the stoolies, police raided the house, arrested 15 people, and confiscated five kegs. So, either the cops "lost" one, or the kids drained a keg in 30 minutes? Bravo. Those must have been some killer keg stands. In a fitting bit of karma, the original Facebook promotion offered a comforting post script, which assured invitees that, if the police were called to the house, the hosts' police scanner would give sufficient warning for an escape. D'oh.

The siblings' parents shouldn't get too upset with their children's wild and crazy antics, though, or over their ignorance of Facebook's power. Exhibiting at least some common sense and maturity during the whole debacle, the Phelan children did offer shuttle service to and from the kegger to deter impaired driving. Seriously, though, who was paying for all this, and can we come next time? We'll keep it quiet. Not a single status update. Or, if we're on Twitter, not even one tweet. We promise. [From: WOWT Via:]
