Harry Connick Jr.'s teen daughter's house party went very wrong
Harry Connick Jr.'s teenage daughter, Georgia, may be grounded by her parents for a long time (or worse) if these latest reports are true.
According to People magazine, the teen was arrested this past weekend after she threw a house party at her family's home in New Canaan, Connecticut, while her parents were out of town. But the house party is not the problem — the problem is that she reportedly supplied alcohol to her underage guests.
Georgia is facing charges from New Canaan police for permitting minors to possess alcohol and procuring alcohol for minors, NBC New York reports.
According to the publication, on Saturday, Aug. 15, about 1 a.m., someone called the police to report that underage drinking was taking place at the Connick family home. When police arrived at the scene, they reportedly discovered several teens trying to flee the party and escape through the woods. However, 15 guests, who were between the ages of 18 and 20, remained at the scene while police called their parents.
Police also say they found empty and partially empty beer cans at the house, NBC reports. Georgia told police that she had only intended to have a small gathering of friends, but many uninvited guests had turned up.
No further information has been revealed at this time, but the American Idol judge has asked for privacy.
"This is a private matter which we are dealing with as a family," he told the mag in a statement on Tuesday. "We have no further comments. Thank you for understanding."
