Release Date: 
10/22/2012

On October 15th 2012, the Hermiston Police Department was advised of a possible underage alcohol consumption party having taken place in Hermiston on the night of October 5th.  The party was reported to have included several students involved in sports from the Umatilla High School.

The Hermiston Police Department began an investigation into the matter on October 16th and, after having interviewed numerous students between the ages of 14 and 18, concluded the investigation on October 20th with the arrest of Crystal J. Wright, 38 years of age, of 1500 NE 10th Street #43, Hermiston.

Wright was processed at the Hermiston Police Department and later lodged at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton on (7) counts of Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor.

“Because our investigation of the matter began several days after the party took place, our focus was on ascertaining who provided the alcohol.  It is my understanding the Umatilla School District has sanctioned their student athletes that were at the party,” reports Chief Jason Edmiston
