Musician/actor Harry Connick Jr.'s daughter is accused of providing alcohol to underage guests at a party she hosted this past weekend at her family's New Canaan home while her parents were away, according to New Canaan police.
Georgia Connick, 19, faces charges of permitting minors to possess alcohol and procuring alcohol for minors, according to New Canaan police.
Someone called police just after 1 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15 to report underage drinking was going on at a party at the Connick family's West Road house in New Canaan. When police arrived, they discovered a lot of young people running from the home and trying to escape through the woods near the home, police said.
The "American Idol" judge's daughter told police that swarms of young people showed up at her house during what was initially intended to be a small gathering, according to New Canaan police.
There were several empty and partially empty beer cans at the home, police said they discovered.
Officers contacted the parents of 15 party guests between 18 and 20 years old who stayed at the house while police were on scene, New Canaan police said.
NBC Connecticut reached out to Harry Connick Jr.'s publicist for comment and left messages, but she couldn't be immediately reached. No contact information for the family was immediately available.
