More arrests loom in Stephentown party, Holloway 'ready to move on'

Posted:

TROY, N.Y. - A seventh young person involved in the large party held at former NFL player Brian Holloway's Rensselaer County home has turned themself into police on Friday.

On Thursday the six "key players" in the party turned themselves in at the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office and police say they expect as many as 200 more arrests to be made in the coming days - a record number for one single case in Rensselaer County.

Officials say 300 people broke into Holloway's vacant Stephentown home on August 31, 2013 and vandalized the home during a large party.

Holloway says he wishes nothing but the best for the six young people charged in connection with the party that caused around $20,000 in damage to his home.

He says his focus is now on making his home beautiful again. Holes in the walls have been patched up, there are new windows in almost every room and the areas where the party was held have been stripped down to the sub-floor.

"Dirty and sticky with beer and alcohol and vomit. It was all destroyed. The floors are getting completely redone," he says.

Holloway, now ready to move on with his life, says he tried his best to get through to the young people before the law caught up with them.

"I'm all about accountability and taking responsibility for your actions. They made some adult decisions," he said. "So, as a result of them failing to agree to communicate and start a conversation, they broke the law and they're going to pay the consequences."

NEWS10 ABC spoke with one of the six arrested, Juan Santana, who says he's ready for the situation to be over, too.

Those arrested Thursday were 19-year-old Seth Hawk, of Grafton, for allegedly organizing, advertising, and providing alcohol for the party. He's been charged with Burglary 3rd-degree, Criminal Mischief 4th-gegree, both felonies, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Unlawfully Dealing with a child, misdemeanors. 

Cody Blain, 21, of Berlin, and 20-year-old Juan Santana, of Grafton, have both been arrested for allegedly providing alcohol. They have each been charged with Criminal Trespass 2nd-degree, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Unlawfully Dealing with a child, misdemeanors.

Also charged were 18-year-old Meghan Loiselle of Green Island, 17-year-old Mackenzie Grogan of Cohoes and 18-year-old Keely C. Sullivan of Troy for allegedly stealing a granite eagle statue valued over $1,200 from the home. They have each been charged with felony Grand Larceny and Criminal Trespass.
