TROY, N.Y. (AP) — The upstate New York home of former NFL player Brian Holloway that was trashed during a party attended by hundreds of young people has been sold at a foreclosure auction.

Holloway tells The Associated Press that his 200-acre property in rural Stephentown sold for $400,000 during Tuesday morning's auction.

The only bidder was Berkshire Bank, which bought the lien on the house. Local media has reported that Holloway owed more than $1 million to the bank.

Holloway had been seeking to sell the property for $1 million. He says he's working on plans to reacquire the property.

Thousands of dollars in damage was done during a Labor Day weekend party attended by up to 400 people who broke into the house. Police have charged eight people.
