MADISON (AP) - The city of Madison is fining three University of Wisconsin-Madison students more than $86,000 for a house party.
Twenty-one-year-old Travis Ludy, 20-year-old Mitchell Klatt and 20-year-old Kevin Tracy face 130 citations for things like dispensing alcohol without a permit, procuring alcohol for an underage person and adult encouraging underage alcohol consumption. The students also could face university discipline.
Madison police say the men could have faced a smaller fine if they hadn't locked doors and turned off the music and lights when officers arrived Sept. 11.
Ludy says they hope to get the fines reduced, because none of them can afford it.
