— City Police arrested a trio of college students after allegedly hosting a house party in which they served alcohol to minors in quantities that caused several to require medical attention.

Investigators said the hosts of the party at 275 Ontario St. were Victor Weberman, David Medelowitz, and Daniel Lampert, who are all 20 years old. Police arrived on the scene around 12:45 Wednesday after receiving a complaint about a large house party .

Police later determined that at least 15 people at the house were underage. City police spokesman Steve Smith said three of the underage partygoers were so intoxicated they had to be treated at the scene by firefighter and then taken by ambulance to Albany Memorial Hospital.

All three hosts were charged with 15 counts of first-degree unlawfully dealing with a minor. They were also ticketed for unnecessary and unusual noise in violation of city ordinances.

They were arraigned in the Albany City Criminal Court and released after posting bail.
