    CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) -- A 74-year-old woman is in jail after police say she hosted a party where she allowed minors to drink.

    It started when police say they responded to complaints about a loud party taking place on Rye Drive in Cabot. Deputies say they discovered about 40 people all between 17-19 years old.

    According to investigators, homeowner Martha Dubois, 74, became belligerent towards authorities and attempted to pour out a large bottle of an alcohol beverage. Dubois was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of minors and violation of the host law.

    "Underage drinking will not be tolerated," Sheriff John Staley said in a release. "Anyone allowing teenagers to possess or consume alcohol beverages will be held accounted for."

    The minors at the party were issued citations.
