FALLON, NV - A Halloween drinking party involving underage students has resulted in multiple charges against two Churchill County men and could have a big impact on the Fallon high school football team.
Apparently a number of students, including at least two members of the football team, were at the party saturday night.

21-year-old Jarred Dodson and 20-year-old Nicholas Meader are charged with hosting the party. They face 18 counts each of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

None of the under-aged kids has been charged, but school district officials have launched an investigation.

School Superintendent Carolyn Ross says once an investigation is completed there will be appropriate consequences including possible suspensions for the football players according to nevada interscholastic athletic rules.

Fallon plays Spring Creek Friday night for the northern 3A championship.

It's the high school's first playoff appearance in decades.
