Choppers Chase Kids from Keg Party in Dobbs Ferry Woods

County helicopter picks up bonfire from local kids drinking at Juhring Estate.

Westchester County Police helicopters patroling the area on Dec. 30, came across a large group of Dobbs Ferry teens holding a keg party in the woods in the Juhring Estate, Dobbs Ferry Police said.

"The teenagers had a bonfire, which was detected by the helicopter's thermal control imaging camera," said Dobbs Ferry Detective Marc Bailey. "The camera got images of the fire and a number of youths running."

Apparently the chopper's spotlight startled the youths, who disbursed after they realized it had zeroed in on them at around 10 p.m.

No arrests were made.

Dobbs Ferry Patrol Officer Jeffrey Jee extinguished the small fire. He could not say how many teens seemed to have been involved.

"...just flying around anyway..." so what part of that statement implies that we are not wasting huge dollars on copter fuel, a pilot and probably a co-pilot who gets to read the IR, use the cool techno spotlights and make loud announcements from the cockpit..."put down the Budweiser, get your hands off of your first ever girlfriend's knee, and step away from the golf course greens with your hands in the air..." oh those teens, starting trouble in the suburbs again, and lucky for us, the copter is just floating about to nip that poor behavior in the bud!

mjb fresh, keep your comments coming! Helicopters busting keg parties? But as the other poster wrote, they are "just flying around anyway"!! Hilarious. These kids will be laughing about this in the 2042 high school reunion.

I know the true identity of MJB, but I've sworn a solemn oath never to reveal it. But I think an anonymous blog from MJB would be great.

mjb is not an anonymous human, as pictures and profile will reveal...its a sneaky name used years ago to find out what keg parties my kids were attending, to make sure they participated properly in ritual teenage behavior without crack cocaine or chrystal meth in the mix!
