This article needs some work, but the video in the sources is hilarious. --SVTCobra 01:42, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Article appears to have already (or been started afterwards, I don't know) at Melbourne teenager arrested after throwing party for 500, expected to receive fine. We'll do a merge with this one. Spebi 01:45, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. 208.127.136.5 05:31, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Done -- Spiderpig0001 21:12, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Isn't the $ a bit redundant?[edit]

Shouldn't it be "20 000 AUD" or something similar? 68.39.174.238 02:59, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Most people don't encounter terms like AUD. But yes, it's redundant. I prefer AU$. Can someone move the article to "Party involving 500 youths in Australia results in AU$20,000 damage bill" ?? -- 203.57.68.20 10:00, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

(Also, "child porn" is such a serious charge, we should point out (for NPOV) that it involves photos of each other - drunk, semi-nude, playing twister - on mobile (read:cell) phone cams. -- 203.57.68.20 10:03, 17 January 2008 (UTC))

I think I addressed the issues about the currency styling per this, both in the title and and the article. I removed the claim of charges for child pornography, which could not be found in the listed sources. --SVTCobra 00:25, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
The child pornography charges appear to be real, and have been re-added by Johnl with a source this time. The source is dated Jan 16, which is after the date of this article, but is probably attributable to the time difference between UTC and Australia. --SVTCobra 03:02, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
