Brewer 18-year-old arrested after using fake ID to buy alcohol, throwing party, police say

By Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN Staff

BREWER, Maine — A local 18-year-old used a fake identification card to purchase alcohol and then threw a party last week that got him arrested, Brewer police Capt. Jason Moffitt said Monday.

Mark Moellentin was arrested about 12:15 a.m. April 16 and charged with allowing minors to consume liquor.

Police were called to his North Main Street home for the report of a loud party. “They could see underage people drinking through the window,” Moffitt said. “They were playing drinking games.”

Moellentin’s parents “were unaware he was having a party,” the police captain said.

He also was charged with possession of a false ID card that said he was old enough to purchase alcohol, Moffitt said.

None of the underage people drinking at the party was charged, the police captain said.

Another local teen was charged with an alcohol offense last week after police in Holden charged him with drunken driving. The 17-year-old Holden resident and Brewer High School student, who was not identified because he is a juvenile, told police he went to a party and then attempted to drive home and crashed his truck. He was not injured but was charged with operating under the influence of alcohol.
