Local police responded to a noise complaint on Saturday night around 11pm at 1550 Noah Bledsoe Road in Chalybeate. When they arrived, an out-of-control party was discovered by Deputy Wally Ritter, Special Deputy Jordan Jones, and Brownsville Police Officer Nathan Dennis, where one male suspect, later identified as Jeremiah Lay, fled on foot but was apprehended after a lengthy chase. After capturing Lay, over 40 people were on scene with five of them being juveniles. Deputy Stoney Phillips, US Park Rangers Doy Russel and Jody Sanders, and KSP Trooper Chris Newkirk arrived on the scene to assist.
Police say there were only a few local people there, as most in attendance were from Warren County, with some from Logan and Todd Counties, and others from Tennessee. Party goers said that word traveled through social media. After law enforcement conducted field sobriety tests on all drivers and contacted parents of all juveniles, everyone either left the party safely or had friends pick them up.
Jeremiah Lay was charged with unlawful transaction with a minor 3rd degree; fleeing or evading police on foot 2nd degree; resisting arrest & alcohol intoxication in a public place.
RJ Perry was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and unlawful transaction with a minor 3rd degree.
Both Lay and Perry lived at the residence.
