Party in the house... a mansion, that is, with upwards of 1,500 people

Police in Brampton, Ont., say they had to call in officers from every division to break up a rowdy house party that drew upwards of 1,500 people.

Peel Region police say the officers who arrived at the so-called "mansion party'' northwest of Toronto Friday night quickly realized backup was needed.

Const. Thomas Ruttan says several arrests were made after officers were allegedly assaulted. He says some partiers were also picked up for public intoxication but no injuries have been reported.

Police say the Twitter-promoted event caused an estimated $70,000 in damage to the home, which is undergoing renovations.

They say the party organizer had permission to host the party but did not expect so many people to attend.

Police say the homeowner and neighbours called police when noise and traffic got out of hand, but the owner isn't likely to face charges.

    Can a person be arrested for stupidity?????
    ALL the accrued police costs should be billed to the idiot party organizer. Who invites the world to a party on twitter? Why should taxpayers bear the cost.
