The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department shut down a “swingers” party as part of a crackdown on superspreader events as coronavirus cases soar.
The “adults only” event with middle-aged partygoers got busted at a South Central Los Angeles warehouse over the weekend, KTTV reported Tuesday.
“The party is over,” a Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy told partygoers using the loudspeakers.
The department’s superspreader task force detained and cited hundreds of people.
KTLA reported Tuesday that a total of 182 people were arrested on Saturday alone as the sheriff’s department is cracking down on superspreader events that could exacerbate the spread of the coronavirus.
Two people were arrested for allegedly promoting the events while 180 people were arrested for going against health orders, the sheriff’s department tweeted.
On Saturday January 9, 2021 #LASD Super-Spreader Taskforce continued enforcement of the Los Angeles County health orders to address underground party events.
