Video: TODAY’S Willie Geist and Natalie Morales chat about the biggest headlines of the day, including parents who had police bust and arrest their own children, who were drinking underage.

Two Connecticut sisters are in trouble with police after their parents reportedly had them arrested for throwing a party at their home.

It was the third get-together that the girls -- who are 15 and 16 years old, and attend Glastonbury High School just outside of Hartford, Conn. – hosted when their parents went away over the Columbus Day weekend, with up to 20 people attending each night, The Hartford Courant reported this week.

But they were busted when their parents returned home on Sunday, instead of Monday as planned, police said.

Some of the party goers fled from the house, but others remained inside and that’s when the parents called the police -- "the right thing to do," agent James Kennedy of the Glastonbury Police told the newspaper.

The teens face charges of permitting a minor to possess alcohol, according to The Hartford Courant. Their names have not been released because of their ages.
