Gloucester Township Police Break-up House Party With 250 Guests
A pool party 250 people paid to get into over the weekend in Gloucester Township was broken-up by police for violating state social distancing orders.
A large gathering of what Gov. Phil Murphy would certainly refer to as 'knuckleheads' attended the party Sunday afternoon on Prospect Court off Jarvis Road in Sicklerville that had actually been promoted ahead of time.
The homeowner, 31-year-old Jeffrey Davis, Jr., had previously been advised by Gloucester Township Police against holding the party after authorities got wind of similar gatherings happening in the area, but he and a promoter named Marheem Miller of Camden threw it anyway.
The event reportedly went on for several hours before being broken up by police, according to Patch.com.
None of the party-goers had been wearing masks or practiced social distancing.
There was loud music and cars illegally parked along the court. Those vehicle owners were cited by GTPD. Guests allegedly littered the court upon being asked to leave.
Davis and Miller are both facing multiple charges, including violating Gov. Murphy's executive orders.
