20 Officers Called in After Lowell Party Turns Violent

Five Massachusetts residents are scheduled to face a judge Monday following a disturbance at a Lowell house party over the weekend that required 20 officers to break up.

The Lowell Sun reports Anthony Guerra, 22; Charles Kong, 23; Charlie Mith, 23; Michelle Meak, 28; and Kevin Siriouthay, 22, all of Lowell, were arrested Saturday night on various charges including disturbing the peace and assault and battery on a police officer. An 18-year-old also fled the scene of the party at the two-family home on Westford Street but police told the Lowell Sun he is known to authorities and will be summonsed to court on two counts of assault and battery on a police officer.

The paper reported that officers were called to the home around 10 p.m. for a report of a loud party. Kong, who told authorities he lived at the house, allegedly agreed to lower the music. Police left the scene, only to return 40 minutes later for the same complaint. Authorities told Kong to end the party and threatened criminal charges before leaving, the paper reported. Police then received a third call at 11:15 p.m. when officers returned to find about 20 people at the scene.

When officers told the partygoers to disperse, Mith allegedly started a disturbance, causing authorities to call in 20 officers to restore the peace. One suspect reportedly had to be subdued with a Taser. No officers were injured in the incident.

The suspects will be arraigned in Lowell District Court. It's unclear if they have attorneys.
