Police investigating massive house party in Freetown

Neighbors shared complaints and concerns at special meeting

FREETOWN, Mass. (AP) — Officials in Freetown are looking into a massive house party earlier this month that drew roughly 1,000 rowdy partygoers to this small, largely rural Massachusetts town near the Rhode Island state line.

The town’s Board of Selectmen held a special meeting Monday night where police and neighbors aired their complaints and concerns about the June 18 party at a house on Leonard Avenue.

Police told the roughly 80 people in attendance that they believe the party had been heavily promoted, was a ticketed event and that guests were bused to the bash, which featured live music and DJs.

They even suggested the promoters used to advertise the party may have gang ties.

Police said they’re considering charging the homeowner with disturbing the peace, lack of an entertainment license and liquor law violations.
