With the annual season for school proms and graduations in full swing, local police departments in South Carolina typically turn their attention to the dangers of teenagers drinking and driving. In Greenville County, law enforcement recently targeted proms as well as after-prom parties. Acting on an unspecified complaint, authorities crashed one party and arrested a number of teenagers on underage drinking and drug charges.
The arrests were reportedly made as part of a law enforcement crackdown named the "Out of Their Hands Enforcement Blitz." When sheriff's deputies arrived at the home, they reportedly found more than a dozen teenagers drinking. Their ages ranged from 16 to 19, including the 18-year-old host of the after-prom party. Moreover, the teen's parents, ages 46 and 47, were also home.
