MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A 19-year-old driver has been cited for drunk driving after crashing his car into a home.

The crash occurred around 3 a.m. Sunday morning in the 700 block of Bramblewood Drive in Miami Township.

Police say Sterling Bourne, 19, crashed into the garage portion of the home while he was on his way back from a party. Police say Bourne had consumed at least 10 beers and had brought a bottle of liquor to the party.

The host of the party, Andre Altaly, 18, of Loveland, has been cited under Ohio's keg law for allowing the underage alcohol consumption.

The keg law falls under the Ohio Revised Code and states: "No person who is the owner or occupant of any public or private place shall knowingly allow any underage person to remain in or on the place while possessing or consuming beer or intoxicating liquor."

 "It doesn't matter whether they provide the alcohol or whether the alcohol is brought by the underage person themselves, it's providing a location for them," says Sgt. Al Fatute with Miami Township police.

No one was injured, but the home and a car parked in the driveway suffered extensive damage.
