(NEWSER) – We hope it was worth it. A 22-year-old student of American University is facing up to $275,000 in fines after what police say was an out-of-control frat party on Jan. 15. Tyler Steinhardt, 22, ended up with 110 citations for allegedly providing alcohol to minors at a Bethesda, Md., residence that he leases, which is home to the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. Police say they arrived to find two males carrying an unconscious 18-year-old female who was making "gargling noises" to an Uber. She was taken to a hospital with alcohol poisoning, reports WJLA. About 30 officers "from all over the county ended up responding to help out to maintain control of this party," a cop tells WTOP.
As officers tried to enter the home, partygoers blocked the front door with a couch and hid in closets and under beds, police say. Cops say they eventually found 200 people on the first floor – another 50 to 75 were in the garage – with beer flowing through the floor and into the basement, per WUSA. Amazingly, a breath test for alcohol registered .09, a level above the state's legal limit for driving, in the air. At least Steinhardt isn't alone in his legal troubles: Fraternity president Jamieson Tymann, 21 was charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer after allegedly punching a cop in the chest and eye. The officer needed stitches. Police say a robbery and stabbing were also connected to the party in some way. Each of Steinhardt's citations carries with it a fine of up to $2,500, but WUSA says he's "unlikely" to be hit with the full $275,000 penalty.
