Ain't no party like a Brampton, Ontario, #MansionParty, because a Brampton, Ontario, #MansionParty is INSANE.
Over the weekend, a 17-year-old from the Canadian suburb threw a party at his parents' still-under-construction, 5,000-square foot home. Word spread on Twitter of the #MansionParty and, by the time Friday night rolled around, some 2,000 teens arrived ready to PAAAAARTY!
"I have seen something like this in the movies, but never in real life," a 16-year-old going by the name Nick told The Record. "There were hundreds of people here. Some people were climbing over ladders and smashing the windows. Some were drinking. Everyone wanted to get inside."
At approximately 9:30 p.m., a neighbor called 911, who responded by sending 60 police unites, including SWAT officers and K-9 units. They made several arrests, though most were just for underage drinking.
One high schooler in attendance tweeted:
I watched a man get beat by a baseball bat . I watched windows break , swat pointing guns , K-9 unite released & it was great .#mansionparty— May 7th (@AnnieCranston) May 3, 2014
Police say the kids are lucky that no one got hurt, as the house had been in the process of being built for several years now and the balcony and staircases could have easily collapsed under the weight of ALL THOSE TEENS. There were no injuries.
The damage caused by the party is estimated at $70,000.
Shauna Hunt of City News says one teen told her "he feels awful. This party got out of control."
Meanwhile, when reached for comment, the teen's mom told Daily Mail, "I told my son he could have some friends over."
