Massachusettes Police arrested 41 people over the weekend in connection with a wild three-day college bender that led to a property near the college campus condemned by the city.

Cops arrested the two occupants who rented the home including 21-year-old Andrew Juckett, 21, who attends Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts, and his roommate Juan Perez, also 21 years of age.

Authorities responded to reports of a disturbance around 1 a.m. Sunday morning at a property in Bridgewater, Mass., where they discovered a raging house party that was a scene out of the movie “Animal House.”

Inside, Police officers found large amounts of alcohol, multiple underage drinkers, and multiple road signs littered throughout the house.

Several people attempted to flee by jumping out of windows on the first floor. However, police still arrested dozens party animals.

According to city records, the home was last sold in 2009 for almost $270,000. At the time, the owners described the 1,748 sqft, four bedroom home, built in 1908, as a ‘fully renovated’ Victorian property with a large living room, a fireplace and maple cherry wood floors in the bedrooms and dining room.

According to the police report, cops, at first, were unable to get inside the house but witnessed people destroying furniture and heard sounds of glass breaking from inside the home.

Many of the partygoers were charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and being a minor in possession of alcohol.

Police hadn’t revealed how many of those arrested attended Bridgewater, but described them as ‘college-aged.’

Although authorities haven’t released details of the full extent of the damage to the house, city officials condemned the property due to unsafe conditions and all of the furniture in the home had to be placed outside.

Juckett and Perez were told to vacate the premises, and now face charges including keeping a disorderly house, obstruction of justice and supplying alcohol to minors.

Bridgewater Police Chief Christopher Delmonte said: ‘This is not the typical result of a police response to a loud party.

‘The number of people arrested and the charges levied against each of them should underscore the burden a few can place on neighborhoods and the amount of municipal resources required to restore order.

‘We have developed a comprehensive plan for dealing with these types of situations, which requires tenants and landlords to be held accountable.

‘Our residents should not have to put up with this. It is a quality-of-life issue.’
