Mother accused of allowing underage drinking at open house party


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.


Man beaten, stabbed in head with pitchfork

Russell Romero stabbed a man in the back of the head with a pitchfork — and that was after beating him in the head with a tire iron, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

The attack happened about 1 a.m. Saturday on Hudson Avenue. Information about the victim's condition or what prompted the altercation were not available Saturday.

Romero, of New Port Richey, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery. He's being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Maybe before the NFL's national anthem uproar you assumed professional sports were apolitical endeavors. You'd be dead wrong in the case of St. Petersburg's mayoral race.
