Harry Connick Jr.'s daughter, Georgia Connick, was arrested over the weekend after allegedly hosting a party at her family's New Canaan, Conn., home, where alcohol was served to minors.

Georgia, 19, faces charges of permitting minors to possess alcohol and procuring alcohol for minors, E! News confirms. Someone called police after 1 a.m. Saturday morning to report that there was underage drinking taking place at the Connick residence. When police arrived, they discovered many people trying to flee the scene by escaping through the nearby woods, law enforcement told us.

Police also discovered empty beer cans and partially empty beer cans on the property.

Harry and wife Jill Goodacre were not at home during the party.

"This is a private matter which we are dealing with as a family," the American Idol judge told People in a statement Tuesday. "We have no further comments. Thank you for understanding."

Georgia told police that she had planned a small gathering of friends but more people showed up unannounced and unexpected. New Canaan police reached out to more than 15 party guests, all of who were between the ages of 18 and 20.

The Will and Grace alum's daughter is due to appear in court on Sept. 2.
