Two days after being arrested for allegedly furnishing alcohol to more than 50 underage drinkers, a Hatboro man was again charged for the same offense.

Carson Blair Coleman 20, of Hatboro, was charged with furnishing alcoholic beverages to people under the age of 21, underage drinking, and disorderly conduct. 

Horsham Township Police officers responded for the second time in a week to a Meetinghouse Road residence in the early morning hours of Saturday for a reported underage drinking party. 

Besides Coleman, five others were cited for underage. 

Coleman's most recent charges came two days after his alleged involvement in an underage drinking party in which he and 55 others were cited.

Since he can't obey Penna's underage alcohol prohibition laws from outside of prison lock him up on $100,000.00 cash bail and no 10% deals.

This was bound to happen. This kid is going nowhere fast and unless he changes quick, he is going to end up behind bars and sure won't be celebrating his 21st at the bar like us normal people did. Hopefully the police can knock some sense into him and judge Leo can throw the book at him. I understand kids want to have fun but not at the expense of getting caught and then doing it again. But if parents are not going to do anything about their childs behavior then shame on them. I know my kid would be put on lockdown and sure as hell would not be hosting another party..

A lot of it all comes back to parents who haven't done their jobs while their kids were growing up. This young man doesn't have any common sense because if he did he would not have provided alcohol to minors, let alone go back to the same house two days after his first arrest. Parents need to invest time and energy into their kids. Raising kids is not easy.

I have a neighbor (26 years old) with teenagers EVERY Friday and Saturday night. I can't count how many times we've called police. We had to put up a high privacy fence since they were urinating near the property line and vomiting. Loud music all night, arguments between the boyfriends and girlfriends, reckless driving by drunk teenagers. They have access to unlimited alcohol and the Philadelphia police can't do anything about it. It's horrible living like this and they just laugh when the police leave because the girl knows nothing is going to happen. They see police and she has everyone hide and turn off the lights so she can pretend she's not home. Someone's going to get seriously injured in a car accident or they're going to hurt an innocent person. I guess that's what it'll take for them to stop her. Any ideas to help with this?

Well, isn't that nice...I just saw 8 kids, no more than 16, come out of her house.

Lisa, unfortunately you are in a tough position since cops are not allowed to enter a house without a warrant or seeing through an open window/door that minors are drinking since they need some type of probable cause. It is a shame because im sure you along with everyone else does not want to see any of these kids driving drunk and hurting themselves or someone else. My advice Is to keep calling the police as soon as someone opens that door to come out to urinate/ throw up. Go to the station and talk to the captain or seargant and explain exactly what time the parties usually start so they can have a cop cruise by and make sure to mention they are driving home drunk and try to get license plate numbers.

We've done all you're suggesting. The police have o far as to say they know the kids are in there because they hear them. They can't go in because she refuses. We've gone to the district to tell them the parties are going on, as they happen. We've contacted our state representative. He's been helpful but to no avail. He did say he was going to look into the probable cause angle. That was a few months ago, though. I go to the monthly community meetings to address the problem directly to the Captain - still nothing. Only a few kids drive. Many are dropped off by parents and the home owners mother is the one dropping off her little sister along with a car load of friends. The police just don't seem interested in this. The answer is always, sorry, there's really nothing we can do.

Are they also going to charge the person who sold or purchased the 20 year old the alcohol also ??

@harley You think someone was dumb enough to pay with a credit card? It's too much trouble for the police to prove. They got their prime suspect

Who cares about Philly! This is a Hatboro/Horsham page. However, I will tell you the problem why these parties are still going on. IT'S PHILLY!!! THESE COPS HAVE MORE SERIOUS ISSUES TO ATTEND TO LIKE MURDERS, DRUGS AND OTHER SERIOUS CRIMES! Go over there yourself and do something! But you already did that too right? Video tape them, interrupt them when they are quiet or sleeping. Get a paintball gun and unload. Isn't anyone else complaining? Or are you "that person" who is the neighborhood snoop and calls the cops on every and any little thing that happens. Like kids walking on your lawn or playing in the street in front of your house?

Bob I think in this day and age....The suspect will sing like a bird of they offer him something...Loyalty is a thing of the past.
HarleyGirl04 August 12, 2013 at 06:57 PM
If they offer....sorry :)
