Jim Vos, CEO of hedge fund Aksia, has been arrested and charged for failing to stop alcohol possession by a minor, when his teenaged kids threw a wild party that ended with a 17-year-old girl needing a trip to the hospital.
Vos was charged along with his son Hayden, 22, and daughter Sophie, 18.
The party was thrown by Sophie, who was celebrating graduating her private school. She invited about two dozen classmates to her father’s home.
The Daily Mail reports:
The party, which was hosted by Sophie, was celebrating the graduation of students of St George’s, a private school in Newport, Rhode Island, which commands fees of $60,000 a year. At least two-dozen people were at the party.
Police arrived at the house shortly before dawn on May 30 seeking to speak with the injured girl.
Officer Clinton Jarvis said when he arrived: ‘I found the remains of an alcohol party, which included the strong odor of alcohol. I observed multiple areas on the patio and lawn covered in vomit.’
He added he found empty Budweiser cans and Mike’s Hard Lemonade bottles.
According to a report on NewCanaanite.com Vos reportedly refused to co-operate with the investigation.
An arrest warrant application filed by Officer Clinton Jarvis claimed Vos ‘knowingly had minors on his property consuming alcohol and failed to intervene which ultimately resulted in the injury of an intoxicated juvenile’.
Both teens maintain that their father was asleep and had no contact with the party.
After Vos’ arrest, the daughter turned herself in and told authorities she provided the alcohol to the other minors at her party.
The 21-year-old brother confessed the next day that he failed to stop the teens from drinking.
