Amish keg party busted in Columbiana County

Beer

WEST TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – Nearly 80 members of the Amish community trespassed on private property while at a party involving a keg of alcohol and music in West Township Saturday night, according to the Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office.

Columbiana County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Steve Boyd, who responded to the call, said the group was guilty of trespassing on property owned by Rosebud Mining. Boyd also said some of those drinking were underage.

At least 100 people were at the party. Boyd said he took the taps for the kegs and that the owners of the taps will face charges if they come forward. A tap is a spout used to get alcohol out of a keg.

The sheriff’s department was tipped off to the party, which was held in a wooded area off Myers Road in West Township. Besides alcohol, deputies also found a generator hooked up to lights, along a radio attached to an amplifier.

Rides were called for those too drunk to drive. The Amish came from five counties in northeast Ohio, including Ashtabula and Geauga.
