PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Police in Princeton, N.J., have charged the presidents of three Princeton University eating clubs with supplying alcohol to minors.
Cloister Inn President Savannah Sachs, Tiger Inn President Christopher Merrick and Cottage Club President Vincent Ley are all 21 and seniors at the university, The Trenton Times reported. The charges in each case involve serving liquor to someone under 21 who subsequently needed medical attention.
Police Lt. David Dudeck said the presidents were deemed to be legally responsible for what goes on in the clubs, which are not owned by or regulated by Princeton University.
Will Scharf, president of the Interclub Council and of the Charter Club, told the Times the clubs have cracked down on underage drinking. He said they employ professional non-student bartenders and security guards and require proof of age for drinkers.
