The $86K University of Wisconsin kegger
Three University of Wisconsin-Madison students -- one of whom stars on MTV's "College Life" -- threw a massive house party in September. More than 200 people showed up, including the police who handed out more than 130 citations.
The final tally of fines for what must have been an epic party? $86,000.
The party started with two kegs before the Sept. 11 Badgers football game against San Jose State University, one of the party hosts told The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It's all like 40- or 50-year-olds with their families," said host Travis W. Ludy, 21.
As night hit, the crowd got younger and the party got out of control. Police say many guests were freshmen who had only been in class for two weeks and paid $5 to get into the party, according to the Journal Sentinal. When the police showed up, party-goers barricaded themselves in the house, turning off the music and quieting.
The students aren't sure how they are going to pay the fines and hope to have them reduced.
