A Long Island woman will face charges stemming from allegations that approximately 100 underage kids were drinking at a wild house party she threw over the weekend.

Police charged Michelle Lankri, 20, with violating the state’s social host law, which aims to curtail parties where underage drinkers get alcohol from consenting adults, according to News 12.

According to police, 75 to 100 underage teenagers were drinking at the party, CBS reported, adding that police also said they had received several complaints about the party.

The house where the party took place, in Hewlett Bay Park in Nassau County, is on Cedar Avenue, near the intersection with Piermont Avenue, News 12 added.

It was not clear who was the homeowner or if any adults were present, CBS reported, adding that some of the neighbors stated that underage parties were common in the area.

“There seems to be a feud between some neighbors so it was more like a revenge type of phone call,” one local resident said to CBS.

Lankri is due in court in Hempstead on Feb. 10, CBS added.
