Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- A large number of minors is cited for underage drinking after a party is busted in Moorhead.

Officers responded to that loud party at 417 16th Street South. They estimate 40 people fled on foot after escaping through windows and doors. Police eventually detained nearly 60 individuals. 52 are charged with minor in consumption, two with fleeing, and one for giving a false name.

Steve Larsen of the Moorhead Police says,” we were ready for gatherings such as this, with extra personnel working, but it's not everyday that we run across a party of that size. I would probably estimate there to be 100 people present at any given time.”

Three of the homeowners are cited for violating the city's social host ordinance.
