Three charged over 'Facebook' party brawl
Three teenagers were charged today in connection with a fight which broke out after more than 100 people gatecrashed a party advertised on the social networking website Facebook.
At 10pm on Saturday, July 18, Hampshire Police attended an address in Chapel Lane, Farnborough, and found a crowd of 100 people on the street with about 30 people involved in a brawl.
Officers, including dog handlers from Surrey Police, took one and a half hours to disperse the crowd and five people were arrested.
Keith Berger, 18, of Oaken Copse Crescent, Farnborough, was charged with two counts of using words or behaviour to cause someone to fear unlawful violence.
James Mahabeer, 18, of Cambridge Road, Aldershot, was charged with affray and Ashley Pemberton, also 18, of Fairfax Road, Farnborough, was charged with affray and possessing an offensive weapon, which was a can of drink.
All three have been bailed to appear at Aldershot Magistrates' Court on October 29.
A Hampshire Police spokeswoman said no further action would be taken against a 19-year-old arrested at the scene, and a 17-year-old boy was fined £80 for using threatening words and behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
