STEPHENTOWN, Mass., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Former New England Patriots offensive tackle Brian Holloway said five teens helped him clean up his house after some 300 teens broke in to party.
An estimated 300 high school students held a flash party at Holloway's vacant Stephentown, Mass., home Aug. 31. The Berkshire Eagle of Pittsfield, Mass., reported Thursday.
More and more partygoers were drawn to the house after word of the party spread on Twitter.
The cleanup crew of five high school juniors and their parents emptied Holloway's house of 10 55-gallon trash bags of empty alcohol bottles and urine-soaked carpets earlier this week, the newspaper said. They then got to work repairing broken windows and door frames.
"We're happy to be part of the solution, not the problem," Emily Taylor, 16, said.
The teens said they had been ostracized by some of the partygoers at school because of their decision to help out.
Holloway said he's tracked down the names of about 100 of the partygoers through Twitter.
"The technology they used to get the word out [about the party] is the exact same technology I'm using to put the brakes on things like this happening again," he said.
Holloway was at his home in Florida when the break-in occurred.
