WATERVILLE — More than 20 Colby College students were summoned Thursday night on charges of underage drinking and using fake identification, police said.

Police Chief Joseph Massey said the department received a call about 11:30 p.m. from the Silver Street Tavern, where the staff thought underage people were drinking there. The Colby students were at the Midnight Blues club under the tavern.

Massey said police arrived shortly thereafter and found the bar already had confiscated a number of fake forms of identification. Several officers responded and found a larger group of underage people there, Massey said.

At least 22 Colby students were issued summonses, Massey said Friday, and some were issued summonses for both underage drinking and possession of a fake ID. All told, 25 summonses were issued. All the students have an April 18 court date at the Waterville District Court, and Massey said the penalty for the crimes is a fine, as these were just civil violations.

Massey said no other crimes were committed and the students were “fairly cooperative” with the officers. Police were on the scene for about 40 to 45 minutes.

Massey said it was a fairly large group of underage adults for one location. He said incidents like that have happened in the past, though usually it would be at an outdoor event, not a bar.

“We don’t generally run into that large a number of folks,” Massey said.

Those summoned were Patrick Yale, 19, charged with possession of liquor by a minor; Elizabeth Barry, 20, consumption of liquor by a minor; John Baron, 20, consumption of liquor by a minor; Amy Tournas, 20, possession of liquor by a minor; Sebastian Ferrell, 20, consumption of liquor by a minor; Wyett McDonald, 19, consumption of liquor by a minor; Margaret Hamre, 20, consumption of liquor by a minor; Sage Sierra, 19, consumption of liquor by a minor; Gregory Whalen, 20, possession of fictitious identification and consumption of liquor by a minor; Emily Taylor, 20, possession of fictitious identification and possession of liquor by a minor; Emily Price, 20, possession of liquor by a minor; Jonathon Schulen, 19, possession of identification of another person; Sarah Fernandez, 20, possession of liquor by a minor; Brooke Gary, 20, possession of liquor by a minor; Ella Cannon, 18, possession of liquor by a minor; Alexander Dorion, 19, possession of liquor by a minor and possession of fictitious identification; Emily Renkey, 19, possession of liquor by a minor; Colton Michel, 19, possession of liquor by a minor; Madeline Greene, 18, possession of liquor by a minor; Natalie Oakes, 20, possession of liquor by a minor; Fahad Hassan, 19, possession of identification of another person; and Dean Weiner, 20, possession of liquor by a minor.
