Jonesboro's "Party Mom" in Trouble Again

CALICO ROCK, AR - A Jonesboro woman who was convicted in 2005 for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, knowingly selling or furnishing alcohol to a minor, and endangering the welfare of a minor after hosting a keg party at her home where approximately 80 teenagers were found by police is now in trouble with authorities in Izard County.

Few formal details are available at this time, but Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence told Region 8 News this morning that 39-year-old Tonya Curtis is the target of an investigation by his department following a weekend incident in the Calico Rock area.  Lawrence was tight-lipped about the on-going investigation, and would only say that there were allegations of gunplay involved.

In April of 2005, Curtis was arrested by Jonesboro police after officers responded to a complaint about a party at her home, where they found two kegs of beer and several teenagers, many of whom had been drinking. 

She was later sentenced by District Court Judge Keith Blackman to 88 days in jail, a $2,100 fine and 180 hours of community service.
