Around 70 people attended the party at a Maryland split-level home, WJLA reported.

And, the partiers drank so much booze that the air inside the house registered a.01 on a police department Breathalyzer, according to Montgomery County Police.

Three officers knocked on the door after neighbors complained about noise. The party, which took place last month, was reportedly billed "Tequila Tuesday", and the alcohol was certainly flowing.

The windows were covered with trash bags and insulation while some empty containers were everywhere. Cans and liquor bottles were strewn about the house, and the floor was sticky with alcohol.

When police arrived, some of the partygoers locked themselves in a bathroom, while another jumped out of a second-story window, according to records obtained by WJLA.

Barcelona maintained their interest in Coutinho, with the deal finally close to being agreed ahead of a huge transfer. Whether the Reds are willing to let go of their marquee player is another factor in the transfer saga.

And in the heat of the insane frat party, officers realized the air in the house was showing up on their breathalyzers at.01, according to KFVS12. They each face up to $315,000 in fines.

The men charged - all aged 20 - are members of the Sigma Alpha Epilson fraternity and students at American University.

Police turned up to the house in Bethesda, Maryland after neighbours complained about loud music and around 70 people, all underage by U.S. drinking laws, were found partying inside the building.

The residents are all 20 years old, while the partygoers were between the ages of 17 and 20.
