DIXON (WIFR) -- Over 40 people were arrested in Dixon Friday night in a large underage drinking party.

Police say they were called to a building downtown late Friday night in the 200 block of West 1st Street before midnight. Officers say people were allegedly urinating from the top of the three-story building and throwing beer bottles into an alley from the second story.

Police contacted the owner of the building who granted them access. Officers separated more than 80 people by age and gender. The majority were between 18 and 20 years old. 38 were issued city ordinance violations for consumption of alcohol as a minor.

Two were arrested on state charges for consumption of alcohol as a minor -- Sterling men 20-year-old Rafael Sosa and 20-year-old Bryan Gutierrez. Gutierrez is also charged with two counts of resisting and obstructing a peace officer.

Police say nearly all of the people arrested were not from Dixon. It appears the alcohol was brought to the party by attendees.
