MAYNARDVILLE (WATE) - The Union County Sheriff's Department arrested more than two dozen teens for underage drinking on Saturday morning.

Matthew Wilson Bounds, 18, Parker Ray Keith, 18 and Braxton Ray Moore, 18, were charged with underage consumption of alcohol. Moore was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of schedule VI drugs.

Twenty-three teens under the age of 18 were also charged with underage consumption. They were released to their parents.

Deputies say they received a tip about a house party at Red Gate Farm, located just South of Maynardville city limits.

Just after 2:00am deputies arrived at the farm, located at 2353 Maynardville Highway.

At the farm, deputies say they found several vehicles parked around a large fire and as they pulled-up several people began running.

Deputies arrested a total of 26 teens for underage drinking.

Several other teens were on the property during the time of the party, but deputies say they found no evidence of alcohol and their parents were called to pick them up.

The Union County Sheriff's Department also says there was an adult male on the property during the party, but says charges are still pending.

The sheriff's department says Bounds, Ray and Moore are all out on bond.
