Arrests made at site of large party


The host of a large party in rural Princeton was behind bars Friday – the second night in a month that partygoers reveled at his property 11286 50th Street, Princeton.

Property owner Mitchell Robert Bohn-Prokop Jr., age 25, was arrested for disorderly conduct, disorderly house, and selling alcohol without a license in connection with the party that attracted about 100 people to the residence, according to Mille Lacs County Sheriff Brent Lindgren. The Mille Lacs County District Attorney’s office is reviewing the charges.

Shortly before midnight on November 23, deputies responded to a loud party and noise complaint on 50th Street. This is the same address where, on October 27, about 600 people converged on the property for a party that included multiple bands. Rachelle Marie Foss, age 19 of Blaine, suffered a serious head injury at the event and was airlifted from the scene by a medical helicopter.

When deputies responded to the address on November 23, they heard loud music playing and observed about a half dozen beer kegs, Lindgren said. Wristbands were being sold that served as a cover charge and access to beer from the kegs, he said.

Deputies found that the alcohol was being sold without a license, Lindgren said. Bohn-Prokop was advised that he was selling alcohol illegally and was ordered to shut down the party. Bohn-Prokop was arrested at the scene.

Deputies seized wristbands, six kegs of beer, and took statements from people attending the party.

Also arrested at the scene was 21-year-old Nathan David Jarl of Brooklyn Park. Jarl allegedly struck a sheriff deputy’s squad car and threw beer bottles at officers from the crowd. Law enforcement officials from the Minnesota State Patrol, Princeton Police Department, Elk River Police Department and Sherburne County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Mille Lacs County deputies at the scene.
