Police bust 1,000-person pool party at Milton mansion
MILTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police busted a pool party with over 1,000 people at a mansion in Milton Friday night.
Police say tickets were sold to the event at the home called, “Make it Nasty Mansion Pool Party.”
Neighbors on Mark Lane said the pool party was outrageous.
“If people want to have a party, fine but we had no idea it was going to turn into to be 1,000 or 1,500 people,” said Mary Sabin, a neighbor.
The partygoers responded to a racy flier promoting a mansion pool party at 4 Mark Lane in Milton; a quiet tree-lined street with a lot of kids, including the homeowners two daughters.
"Our understanding was people were in the pool, outside the pool, in the house and they were home," a neighbor said.
The party invitation made it clear there was an entrance fee and that alcohol would be served at cash bars. But the scantily clad women and the noise and cars everywhere left neighbors nervous enough to want to remain anonymous.
“People are nervous because they don't know who's in the neighborhood anymore and quite honestly we've had a couple of incidents that the police have had to come to and I don't think it’s a coincidence," one man said.
Police say it took over an hour to break up the bash that took place in the pool house. They also say the homeowner will be charged with knowingly allowing alcohol to be sold.
“When you have a cash bar and you're selling bottle service and you have an entrance fee, that sounds like you should have a license to do that and this neighborhood isn't zoned for that,” said Sabin.
The Department of Public Health issued a cease and desist order to the homeowner because they say a private pool cannot be used as a public facility without a lifeguard or a permit.
