The call came in after some partygoers were seen throwing bottles and urinating from the rooftop.

Police say 38 people were issued city ordinance violations for consumption of alcohol as a minor.  

Two people were arrested on state charges for consumption of alcohol as a minor; 20-year-old Rafael Sosa and 20-year-old Bryan D. Gutierre, both of Sterling, Ill..
