MELROSE - An underage boy was brought to the Melrose hospital after he allegedly drank too much alcohol.

The Stearns County Sheriff's department says the incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Deputies then learned of a underage party.  They went to the home of the party, where several people locked themselves inside.  Others took off on foot.

Deputies found three minors, who were taken to the Melrose hospital for possible cold weather injuries.

Deputies were eventually allowed into the home, when the homeowner arrived.  Twelve citations were issued for minor consumption.
