Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Police in Maryland said a wild fraternity party included so much alcohol consumption that the air inside the house registered a positive on a Breathalyzer.

Montgomery County Police said they were called to a rental home in Bethesda by neighbors who complained about an party at the residence, where six 20-year-old members of fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon's American University chapter reside.

Police said there was so much booze at the party, which was billed on Facebook as "Tequila Tuesday Hoy a las 22:00," that the air inside the house registered a .01 on a Breathalyzer.

Police said the six residents, who refused to tell officers where they obtained the alcohol for the party, were each charged with 126 counts of allowing underage possession of alcohol and furnishing alcohol to a minor. They could each face up to $315,000 in fines stemming from the charges.
