Mother arrested after 'open house party'

A 45-year-old mother was arrested early Saturday after allowing 17 minors to drink alcohol at her daughter's 18th birthday party, authorities said.

Some of the minors were playing beer pong at Nadine McGee's house on San Luis Road in Holiday about 1 a.m. Saturday, a report states. McGee, who told authorities she works as a bartender, admitted she knew the kids were drinking, the Pasco Sheriff's Office said.

She was charged with having an "open house party," according to her arrest report. McGee was released from the Pasco County jail Saturday morning.
