WINSLOW, Maine — Two men and a woman were arrested early Saturday morning after police received two complaints of a large drinking party at a Cushman Road residence, according to Winslow police Chief Shawn O’Leary.

The series of events leading to the arrests of Samantha Fitch, 24, of Winslow, George Winfield, 23, of Clinton and Jason Colson, 25, of Vassalboro started at 10:10 p.m. Friday, when police received complaints of loud music and screaming coming from the residence, O’Leary said.

Upon arrival, police found more than 30 vehicles parked in a field and 60 intoxicated individuals who were confrontational, according to O’Leary. Warnings were issued to Fitch, the renter of the residence, to lower the music and control the party.

Police also learned Fitch was in the process of being evicted by an undisclosed management company.

At 2:01 a.m. Saturday, Winslow police stopped a vehicle containing three intoxicated juveniles on Carter Memorial Drive because of a vehicle defect, and determined they had been drinking at Fitch’s residence, according to O’Leary. The juveniles were brought to the Winslow police station and released to their parents’ custody.

Because of the underage drinking, a search warrant for the residence was secured, and Waterville police called in for assistance in handling the large, unruly crowd, O’Leary said. The party was broken up, and Fitch, Winfield and Colson were arrested.

All three were charged with allowing minors to consume liquor and disorderly conduct, and they were taken to the Kennebec County Jail.
