Athens, Athens County , Ohio
Dozens of people were arrested after an annual Halloween block party in Athens got out of control.
By the time the party ended at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, 45 people had been arrested.
Charges range from underage drinking, resisting arrest to assault of a police horse.
Athens County Emergency Services said they responded to about 53 calls altogether, down from last year, when there were 80 arrests.
One teenager on the way to the party never made it, after deputies said they caught her with ecstasy during a traffic stop.
The car full of students was pulled over en route from Columbus to Athens, along U.S. Route 33 Saturday night.
Police said a K-9 found the drugs on Haley Hennick, 19.
The case has been bound over to the grand jury.
