INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Excise Police have found 80 minors — some as young as 13 — during a raid on an Indianapolis bar.
Cpl. Travis Thickstun says excise officers and Indianapolis metro police raided the Early Bird Bar & Grill on the city's northwest side early Sunday after a flyer had advertised a 13-year-old's birthday party.
They arrested 80 minors for being in a tavern. At least 12 also were charged with illegal consumption or possession of alcohol. One person was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Excise officers cited the bar for 80 counts of allowing a minor to loiter.
Thickstun says the juveniles were released to the custody of their parents.
The bar doesn't have a published telephone number and management could not be reached for comment.
