Chester County father and son arrested for hosting underage drinking party

BonnettA father and son were arrested Saturday for hosting an underage drinking party for 19 juveniles, one of which was found unconscious and covered in vomit, at their Chester County home, police said.

Raymond Bonnet, 46, and his 18-year-old son, Elliot, allegedly threw the party at their home on the 1600 block of Bow Tree Drive in
East Goshen Township.

When following-up on complaints, police found young people outside the house holding beer bottles around 11 p.m. Police entered the home and discovered more young people drinking what appeared to be alcoholic beverages.

Elliot Bonnet told police to leave his property.

Police met parents outside the home who complained that their children were inside the home and weren’t responding to calls. After unsuccessfully contacting Elliot, police forcefully entered the home. Once inside, police found a teenager unconscious and covered in vomit. Medics were called to treat the teenager.

Nineteen teens were found inside the home, and all had consumed some alcohol. Seventeen were under the age of 18, and the youngest was 14.

The 19 teenagers were issued citations, while the Bonnett’s face endangering the welfare of children, corruption of minors and selling or furnishing alcohol to minors.

They were arraigned and released on $20,000 bail.
