A third student at Kent State University has been charged with holding a nuisance party since classes resumed on campus.
Kent Police charged Aurora native Brady A. Marlow, 21, with holding a nuisance party at 316 E. College Ave. on Sunday.
Marlow was arrested at 12:42 a.m. and charged with the unclassified misdemeanor, which is defined under section 509.13 of the city's codified ordinances as "a social gathering or party" that meets any number of 10 criteria, including:
- Illegal open container
- Outdoor urination or defecation in a public place or on another's property
The ordinance makes both property owners and tenants responsible for preventing such instances. The house, owned by Scott Hershiser, is a licensed boarding house with the city, according to the Kent Health Department.
The two previous nuisance parties were held on University Drive in September and August.
And in August police charged a Mentor native with holding a nuisance party at 206 University Drive, where six other people were charged with underage drinking.
People found guilty of holding a nuisance party could face a fine of between $500 and $1,000 and 30 days in jail.
