Not so much. Apparently Mr. Russo was a little too interested in his son's friends. Scratch that. Make it WAY too interested.
According to reports, Russo gave alcohol to a gruop of 14-16 year olds, encouraged underaged girls to take their shirts off, had them dance on a stripper pole, and posed for pictures kissing the 36-year old.
Worst party idea ever? Quite possibly. As could be expected, pictures of the party ended up on Facebook.
"Photos of an FHS cheerleader dancing on a stripper pole in uniform and with an alcoholic beverage in hand surfaced on Facebook.
At the party, Russo served alcohol to his son's teenage friends and encouraged the girls present to take a turn on the stripper pole in his basement, records say. Teenagers who attended the party later told police Russo hosts teenage drinking parties on a regular basis, records say.
The girls said Russo did not try anything with them, but encouraged one 16-year-old as she removed her shirt during the Dec. 12 party.
One teen mentioned Russo's house has a room called "the cave" on the second floor where people have sex. One boy claimed he was there that night because another teen planned to have sex and he was "hooking up," with one of the other girls. The boy said they left after his friend was finished.
A 14-year-old girl said she drank Red Bull and vodka at the party and Russo's son became sick from excessive consumption. She later sneaked out of the house with a friend because "the rule is that if you drink alcohol there you have to sleep over because (Russo) doesn't want to get in trouble ..."
It sounds like Mr. Russo is in quite a bit of trouble now. From the sounds of it, this stuff has been going on for a while at his house, and the idea of a 16-year old stripping as he watched and cheered her on certainly won't help his cause.
The 16-year old was removed from the cheerleading team, and the police continue to investigate Mr. Russo. Looks like there won't be any more parties at HIS house.
