The Holmes County sheriff’s office checked out the party after concerned parents notified them that 1,000 Amish guests were expected to gather on a field in Hardy Township, the Associated Press reports.

Several of those taken into custody were also charged with resisting arrest, according to The Daily Record of Wooster.
