Three Iowa City men were arrested after throwing a keg party and allegedly selling alcohol to a police officer and people under the legal age, according to Iowa City police.

John Solsma, 21, was charged with bootlegging and supplying alcohol to people under age; both are serious misdemeanors.

Sean Carney, 20, and Maxwell Pottebaum, 19, were both charged with two counts of PAULA and bootlegging.

The charges came after an undercover investigation of the Sept. 24 party, where an officer purchased a $5 cup for as much beer as he wanted, according to police.

Police observed seven kegs at the party, and other witnesses told them they paid $10 for six shots of alcohol.

Solsma allegedly admitted to purchasing the kegs, according to police.

A serious misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,500.
