If you've ever been in a phone box lately, you'd be sure that the plastic casing itself would be stoned from all the people hot-boxing it.

Apparently booze can make its way into the air too, as university students downed so much alcohol at a frat party that the air inside the house tested positive for alcohol, US police have said.

Fuming neighbours called the cops after about 70 people attended the 'Tequila Tuesday' party in a well-to-do suburb of Bethesda, Maryland in mid-November. Now that is what you would call an absolute rager.

The booming party was quickly shut down as three Montgomery County police officers arrived after receiving noise complaints.

When the cops turned up at the house, they found bin bags and insulation over the windows, empty cans and bottles throughout the house and a basement floor sticky with booze, according to court records reported by WLJA.

Eight people locked themselves in a bathroom to hide from police, while one kid was even said to have jumped from a second-storey window in an attempt to dodge citation. Nice try, mate.

The partygoers were all between the ages of 17 and 20 and were reportedly breathlysed as they left the building, with cops setting up stations outside the house.

At least one of the police breathlysers even found that the ambient air inside the house registered at 0.01 BAC. That's not enough to make it too drunk to drive, but impressive nonetheless.

Six people who admitted to living in the house have now been charged with 126 counts each of allowing underage possession of alcohol and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

All six guys reportedly refused to tell police how they got hold of enough booze to create a rager of that size. Snitches get stitches, and all that.

The six were all enrolled at the private American University based in Washington DC, and were all members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

The fraternity has already been cited with three violations by American University this school year and has four active sanctions in place.

According to court documents, the group could face fines of up to $315,000 (£235,463) each for their rather large stack of crimes.

However, WJLA reported that the prospect of the students receiving that steep a sentence seems unlikely. Bet they're wiping their eyebrows at that.

Either way, we'd imagine that's one pretty memorable party the guys had going there. Even the air was pissed, for fuck's sake.
