STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Even the private security couldn't handle it. Rather than wait for angry neighbors to call police, the homeowners called the cops themselves. Police did not make arrests as they broke things up. But their best professional judgment was that people looked a little drunk.
