Kent Police broke up a nuisance party recently at The Province at Kent student apartments on South Lincoln Street.
Anthony L. Vadini, II, 22, of 1503 Whitehall Blvd., was charged with permitting a nuisance party, an unclassified misdemeanor, and failure to disperse from a nuisance party, also an unclassified misdemeanor, following a party late on May 4 that carried into Sunday, May 5.
Vadini was arrested at 609 S. Lincoln St., The Province at Kent, in apartment C-302 at just after midnight May 4.
A student at Kent State University, Vadini pleaded not guilty to the charges Wednesday in Portage County Municipal Court.
A nuisance party 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.
At least two more people were charged in connection to parties at The Province at Kent during the May 4 weekend.
Casey A. Flannery, 20, of Milan, OH, was charged with underage drinking, a first-degree misdmeanor. Cody A. Leverette, 20, of Medina, OH, also was charged with underage drinking. Both were cited at The Province.
