Time for a time out. Harry Connick Jr.'s 19-year-old daughter, Georgia Connick, was arrested this past weekend following a house party at her family's home in New Canaan, Conn.

Georgia hosted a party at the home while her parents (dad Connick Jr. and mom, former Victoria's Secret model Jill Goodacre) were away this weekend, New Canaan police told NBC News on Aug. 18. She was charged with procuring alcohol for minors and permitting minors to possess alcohol, according to WTNH News 8.

Her famous dad released a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, Aug. 19, regarding his daughter's arrest. "This is a private matter which we are dealing with as a family," Connick Jr. told Us. "We have no further comments. Thank you for understanding."

Police were called to the home shortly after 1 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, after it was reported that there was underage drinking taking place on the property. When the cops arrived on the scene, throngs of youngsters were allegedly running from the home and attempting to escape through the woods surrounding the property.

Georgia told police that it was initially supposed to be a small get together that, typically, grew out of proportion. According to police, the parents of about 15 kids — who were ages 18 to 20 — were called following the incident.

At the time, her famous father was in Philadelphia for auditions for the upcoming final and 15th season of American Idol. "Season 15 here we come!" he wrote, alongside a selfie on Saturday. "@americanidol #idol #BestSeasonYet #stalkie."

His daughter will appear in court in Stamford on Sept. 2.
