Facebook leads police to underage drinking arrests in North Carolina

 

Gaston County police say they were tipped off to underage drinkers by a person who read about a party on the social networking Web site Facebook. Capt. William Melton of the Gaston County Police Department told WCNC-TV that the Facebook posting also helped officers find the party Saturday night where they found at least 31 underage drinkers. Police charged 47-year-old Steven Haney and his girlfriend, 39-year-old Melissa Wilson, with aiding and abetting underage possession/consumption of alcohol. They are both out of jail on $5,000 bail.
