WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Westbrook Police released the names of the students involved in an underage drinking party Thursday.
On April 22 around 11:30 p.m., Westbrook Police were dispatched to Sargent Street after receiving complaint of a "loud large party." When officers arrived, several people were running from the 6 Sargent St. home. Ryan Gilligan, 18, told officers he was a resident of the property and in charge of the home.
Police encountered 12 other people under the age of 21 in the home, and later determined several had consumed alcohol. In total, police charged 11 people:
-Ryan Gilligan, 18, Arrested for Refusing to Submit to Detention / Furnishing a place for Minors to Consume Liquor
-Owen Gillis, 18, Arrested for Refusing to Submit to Detention / Summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Colin Joyce, 18, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Briana Ibarguen, 18, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Brett Goodnow, 18, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Tristian Savage, 18, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Cale Bollig, 19, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
-Shawn McKeough, 19, summonsed for Consumption of Liquor by a Minor
Westbrook High School administrators are investigating the situation as a student disciplinary matter. Westbrook High School has been in the spotlight for underage drinking and disciplinary issues since about 30 students were caught at a party last fall. Gilligan, Joyce and Savage are all on the Westbrook High School Baseball Team's roster, which is the reigning state champion team.
In February, an outside investigation and report was critical of the school, parents, and culture, suggesting the discipline was not fair for all students and showed favoritism toward student athletes.
In March, Westbrook High School started to hold forums about underage drinking and the student code of conduct.
In April, the Athletic Director resigned.
The police said the investigation is continuing.
