The Clay County Jail was packed early Thursday morning, after a Halloween party in Moorhead that police say got out of control. Many partygoers apparently fled when officers arrived around midnight after a neighbor's noise complaint, but police caught up with a lot of them.
Police think about 100 people were in the house near Woodlawn Park. Officers needed a search warrant to get inside, where they found one guy hiding in the dryer and others under piles of clothing.
Eighteen people were arrested and 58 citations were issued for a variety of charges. "They run the gamut," says Moorhead Police Sergeant Robert Matheson.
Some of the charges included minor consuming, fleeing a police officer on foot, failure to disperse from a loud party, social host violation, false name and date of birth and obstructing a legal process.
The party was at 511 4th Street South in Moorhead.
