Chichester man charged with violating Ulster social host law

CHICHESTER – Town of Shandaken Police have charged a 43-year-old Chichester man with violating Ulster County’s Social Host Law for allowing consumption of alcoholic beverages to minors at his home. Timothy Hasbrouck was charged with allowing an underage drinking party at his home.

Police were called to a motor vehicle accident at 648 Route 214 in Chichester on Friday where they found a motorist had just driven off the road and into a drainage ditch while trying to find a parking space at a house party. He was determined to have just arrived and was not impaired, but police observed 40 to 50 minors who had been served alcoholic beverages.

When officers investigated, they found Tim Eissrich, 18, of 69 Clermont Street in Saugerties in control of a half keg of beer that he had obtained by fraudulent means. He was charged with possession of alcoholic beverages by a person under 21.

Both Hasbrouck and Eissrich were issued appearance tickets to Shandaken Justice Court.
