1,500 teens trash Canadian mansion with massive party
ONTARIO, Canada (CNN/CTV Network) — More than 1,000 teens crowded into mansion under construction in Ontario, Canada Saturday night.
It had all the makings of a party at a nightclub. The crowd, the music, the drinks, but this chaotic scene actually came from a family home in Brampton. A 5000 sq. ft. mansion under construction, open for one epic house party that spiraled out of control.
“There was just kids coming in packs of 10, 20 literally no room to walk in the house,” one teen described.
The house, crammed with more than 1 500 people. The party was so big, it began to trend on twitter. By the time police arrived, there were 200 cars lined up and down the street. Teens posing with cruisers, making a mockery of a crowd control nightmare.
“There was a potential, a real potential for something to happen something deadly,” said Const. Thomas Ruttan with the Peel Regional Police.
Peel officers from all divisions responded to the scene. Police say several of them were assaulted resulting in a number of arrests.
Others were detained for public intoxication. The morning after this peaceful neighborhood is back to normal but the house looks like it survived a natural disaster.
“Everything is completely trashed, broken windows, stair railings are broken,” a man explained.
Outside, the grounds are littered with filth. Beer cans, cell phones remain as a reminder of a night gone wild. In total, $70,000 worth of damage and no doubt a post party hangover one homeowner won't soon forget.
An investigation is now on going, police are looking to hear from neighbors about possible property damage, and in the meantime it's too early to tell right now if there will be any charges against the homeowner or her son.
