Big bash lands man in trouble with police

Authorities have arrested a 23-year-old central New York man who hosted a graduation party that got so big and rowdy that authorities called in a helicopter to help break it up.

Gregory York was arrested Tuesday night and arraigned in Town of Manlius Court on criminal trespass charges. He’s being held on $2,500 cash bail after his mother decided to press charges.

Police were called to the party just before midnight on July 3 and found 200 cars parked on the street and an estimated 500 to 700 people engaged in a large outdoor bash that was getting out of control.

Deputies called for aerial assistance, and the helicopter hovered overhead, shining a spotlight as authorities dispersed the party-goers.

It could not be immediately determined if York has a lawyer.
