A Saturday Night party got out of hand after two drunk Stafford residents caused a rather large disturbance and threatened deputies with their dogs.

On June 3rd at approximately 9:49 p.m., deputies responded to Melanie Hollow Lane for a noise complaint. The caller advised there was an extremely loud party occurring in the neighborhood. When deputies arrived on scene, the party could be heard from three houses away. With music blaring and the overwhelming odor of alcoholic beverages around, deputies attempted to locate the homeowners within the crowd. Both homeowners were less than excited to see deputies at their party, one of which began yelling profanities, and threatening to have their dogs bite deputies.

The less than cooperative pair were informed of how loud they were being. After some convincing, the homeowners advised they would lower the volume as deputies left.

The respectable volume lasted a few minutes before the volume was raised once again, higher than before. As deputies approached the party once again, both homeowners met them in the roadway, this time with one of their dogs. Both homeowners continually yelled, cursed, and threatened deputies during their interaction. Due to their public intoxication, public swearing, and disorderly behavior, deputies attempted to place them under arrest. While the male homeowner was taken into custody without incident, the female homeowner turned and began to run away. Her flee attempt was short-lived.

The male was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and the loud noise complaint. The female was charged with two counts of obstruction of justice, fleeing from law enforcement, disorderly conduct, and the loud noise complaint. Both were held at Rappahannock Regional Jail until sober.
