A 17-year-old faces seven charges after a house party early Saturday.
The teenager, from Hamilton, attended a party on the west Mountain. All of the party-goers stayed over at the house after the party.

The 18-year-old resident and her friends left the house and called police around 5 a.m.

The teenager was caught by police and arrested.
The 17-year-old is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, uttering threats and mischief and four other charges.
Police said alcohol was involved.
