SALEM, Ore. -- The Marion County Sheriff's Office broke up a party before it ever got wild.

The Statesman Journal reports that deputies learned of the party near Gates, Ore., from multiple sources at multiple schools.

The party was promoted on social media as #ProjectNat and deputies believed it would include underage drinking.

Deputies went to Packsaddle Park on Friday night and found a stage, bonfire, alcoholic beverages and several partygoers.

Sgt. Chris Baldridge says the alleged party organizer -- 19-year-old Nathaniel Gray -- was arrested after being uncooperative.

The Salem man is charged with disorderly conduct, furnishing alcohol to a minor, littering and providing a place for minors to consume alcohol.
