BOLTON, Conn. (WTNH) — A Bolton woman is facing charges for watching minors drink alcohol in her home without intervening last month.

State police executed a warrant for Alison Romkey, 52, for failure to intervene after she observed minors drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana at a school dance after party in her home on Shoddy Mill Road.

According to the warrant, when police and the teenaged party guests were throwing away the alcohol, Romkey said, “well this is what teenagers do.”

Romkey was arrested on Tuesday and was charged with nine counts of permitting minors to illegally possess alcohol in the home.

Romkey was a member of the Bolton Board of Education. She has since resigned from the board.

She was released on a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on December 4th.

On Friday, police arrested father Eric Romkey, who turned himself in on Thursday, on permitting a minor to illegally possess alcohol charges.
