EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The hosts of an alcohol-fueled Eugene, Ore., house party called police for help when a private security team failed to prevent things from getting out of hand.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/cj0D8u ) that police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says that in Sunday's situation that "was the exact right thing to do."

The newspaper says hosts who seek law enforcement help may still be ticketed in some cases. However, officers who shut down the self-reported party decided not to take any action against the party planners.

McLaughlin says most of the 200 to 300 people at the party appeared to be intoxicated.

Police did accuse two young men of misdemeanor offenses.
