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

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.

A 19-year-old's birthday bash was interrupted after Marion County deputies followed along with the party planning on Twitter.
