STEPHENTOWN, N.Y. - Although former NFL player Brian Holloway encouraged the 300 teenagers, who police say vandalized his home, to clean up and honor veterans, only four teenagers showed up.
Ricky Nelson and Mikaela Brynes couldn't believe what they saw Saturday at the Stephentown home.
"I didn't know it was this damaged after the party" said Nelson.
"It was eating me alive. Like I didn't know that any of this was going on. And if I did I wouldn't have came" explained Brynes.
Mikaela and Ricky are two of three hundred teenagers Police say trespassed onto Holloway's property.
The damages are done, the walls spray painted, broken windows and the floors ruined from scuff marks and urine.
"It was just floating around Twitter and people were texting the address and stuff. We thought it was going to be a normal house party. We didn't know it was going to be broken into and stuff" said Nelson.
The two teenagers came to Holloway's home to apologize on Saturday.
"We brought him an apology card with money in it to say sorry" said Nelson, as he showed us the envelope with the card.
The former New England Patriots football player wanted the teens involved to honor veterans Saturday at his Stephentown home and find, what he calls, redemption.
"They all need time to talk together and work through this egregious offense that was an offense to the entire community" said Holloway, who believes the teenagers involved need to be held accountable and take responsibility for what they've done. "Being a leader, being responsible and being able to go and tell the people and say ‘Look, I was one of the 300, I made a mistake and it was wrong"
And that's what Ricky and Mikaela did as they joined other community members Saturday, volunteering to help clean up the mess that was left behind.
When asked if the party was worth what happened to Holloway's home, Brynes said "no not at all. Not one bit of it was worth it."
Mikaela and Ricky are both being charged with trespassing. This is still an ongoing investigation and police are continuing to interview teens who may be involved.
