FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

POINT OF CONTACT: Lieutenant Neal Griffin, 760-839-4444

             On April 6, 2013, Escondido Police Officers were sent to the 400 block of Ashborne Glen, after receiving complaints of twenty persons fighting in the streets.  When officers arrived in the area a large group was gathered nearby, in front of 453 Cornwall Glen.  Officers attempted to make contact with the individuals but most fled, many running inside the residence.  During a follow up investigation the officers determined that a party was being held at the home and that a number of persons under the age of 21 were present.  It was also determined alcohol was being served at the party and a number of minors had been consuming alcoholic beverages.  Several teenagers present in the home were determined to be intoxicated.  The investigation led to a citation being issued to Mr. Andrew Borboa, 36, who was the adult responsible for the home.  Mr. Borboa was cited for a violation of Escondido Municipal Code 17-220, commonly referred to as the Social Host Ordinance.

            The Social Host Ordinance makes it a misdemeanor for any person who has control of a premises and then knowingly permits, allows or hosts a gathering where minors are allowed to consume alcohol. 

            On August 5, 2013, Mr. Borboa pled guilty to violating the Social Host Ordinance.  Mr. Borboa was fined $3,300.00; all but $1,000.00 being suspended.  Mr. Borboa was also placed on probation for a period of three years.

            The Escondido Police Department will continue to use the social host ordinance as a deterrent to underage drinking.
