Deputies are still investigating an underage drinking party that took place early Saturday morning in the Town of Merrill.
A caller reported a vehicle that appeared stuck on Merrill Town Hall near Anna Rd. When Deputies arrived they found numerous people standing around a camp fire, several of whom fled into the woods. Deputies did locate and test eight underage drinkers ranging in age from eighteen to twenty. They were all cited for the offense. The offenders were from Merrill, Owen, Port Edwards, Nekossa, and Athens.
The Rec. Deputy and the DNR are investigating damage done to state land by large pickup trucks that were present.
