Don Vaughan

GREENSBORO, N.C. – A former North Carolina state senator who is also a prominent Greensboro attorney has been cited with contributing to the delinquency of minors after a large party at his house.

Don Vaughan was issued the citation after officers were called to the party in the 900 block of Sunset Drive at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to Greensboro police.

Officers saw about 40 to 50 teenagers and there were signs of alcohol consumption, according to Greensboro police spokeswoman Susan Danielsen.

In a phone statement, Vaughan said that uninvited members of a local football team crashed the party and brought the alcohol. Vaughan said neither he nor his daughter knew the football players and he asked them to leave.

Vaughan is a Greensboro attorney who served as a North Carolina state senator from 2008 to 2012. He is also an adjunct professor at Wake Forest and Elon universities and served on the Greensboro City Council from 1991 to 2005.

Don Vaughan is married to Greensboro mayor Nancy Vaughan, but Nancy Vaughan said the two are separated and she is living at a different residence.

Nancy Vaughan said she heard Don Vaughan was planning on hosting a “sweet 16” party for their daughter this weekend. She said she heard it got out of hand and regrets what happened.
