At least three Port Washington High School varsity athletes were among 14 teenagers cited for underage drinking after police broke up a party early Sunday morning.

    One of the teens, an 18-year-old Port Washington girl, was also cited for being an adult permitting underage drinking, police said.

    Officers went to the house in the 300 block of LaBrisa Court about 2 a.m. Sunday after they received two tips about the party, according to police.

    A man answering the door told officers his daughter had some friends over, but he was unaware of any drinking, police said. He let the officers into the house and got his daughter, who acknowledged she and her friends had been drinking.

    Officers found 15 teenagers in the basement of the house, as well as a number of beer cans, water bottles — including one with an alcoholic beverage in it — and Gatorade bottles, according to their report. Daily-Press

    The youths were administered breath tests. One girl had no alcohol in her system, but the others had blood-alcohol readings ranging from .008 to .17, according to police.

    According to police, tickets for underage drinking were issued to five 18-year-old boys, two 17-year-old boys and two 17-year-old girls from Port Washington, two 18-year-old girls, one 18-year-old boy and one 17-year-old boy from Saukville and a 16-year-old girl from Grafton.
