Monmouth Univ. Student Charged In House Party Bust
A 20-year-old Monmouth University student is arrested and another is given an ordinance violation in the aftermath of an Ocean Township house party that police say had people scurrying out the back door as they arrived at the front.
Nicholas Gonzalez of Staten Island awaits a court hearing, charged with providing a place for underage alcohol consumption. Tyler Galione, 20, of Wayne, was cited for consuming alcoholic beverages while under the legal age on private property.
Gonzalez was also given a summons for excessive noise, along with Matthew Leonardis, 21, of Williamstown; Michael Caravella, 21, of Staten Island; Wyatt Sklar, 21, of Marlton; and Michael Fasulo, 20, of Bloomfield.
Police say they got a call just after 3 AM on April 25 about a rowdy time in a Wenning Court house. Officer Christopher Brady approached the house, according to the report, and watched numerous partygoers bolting from the rear of the home. Investigators determined that at least one reveler under age 21 had been drinking there, and police say they found numerous part-full and empty beer cups and cans throughout the house.
