Parents arrested for providing alcohol, drugs to minors at party

ORLANDO, FL (WFLX) - An Orlando couple is facing several charges after, deputies say, they had provided drugs and alcohol to minors.

Deputies say the couple hosted a house party for a group of youths ranging in age from 13 to 20.

Deputies say the couple admitted to drinking and smoking pot with their children and their friends. "They shouldn't be acting as cool parents. They should be acting as gatekeepers and preventing their kids from using alcohol and drugs."

At least one young girl at the house party passed out and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The night of the party, DCF Investigators say, they removed four children from the couple's home.
