After seeing an increase in the number of private parties that ultimately warranted police action, authorities are suggesting guidelines to help make sure they don't show up at your gathering.
Officers with the Creve Coeur Police Department aren't anti-social, but by the sound of things, they'd be thrilled if they weren't called to respond to parties in the city because of noise complaints or underage drinking. Monday night, Police Chief Glenn Eidman will share a policy adjustment with City Council members that he presented Thursday to the city's Police and Safety Committee. In 2010, the department issued a summons or made arrests in 6 cases. In 2011 the number jumped to 10. Five parties were broken up in 2010, while 12 were in 2011. And in 2011, the number of cases where underage drinking was suspected jumped to 18, from 8 the previous year. Eidman said there have already been at least 18 party calls in 2012, the most notable …

City Prosecutor: Marjorie Tomaso "more culpable" for June graduation party.
A Creve Coeur man who was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquincy of a minor after a graduation party earlier this summer could soon find his wife charged in the case instead. Robert Tomaso appeared in Creve Coeur Municipal Court in July and according to City Prosecutor Dennis Beckley, made an argument about the applicability of the statute. On Monday, Beckley told Patch that Tomaso's wife, Marjorie, could be charged under city statutes which prohibit allowing or permitting people under the age of 21 with allowing or permitting alcohol consumption. Beckley said Marjorie Tomaso "is far more culpable," and was "more actively involved in the party," making the charge "more fitting to what happened." The charge could come …
