WA Party Legislation Is Not Working!
A Hazelmere party was deemed ‘out of control’ after about 200 people threw bottles at police who tried to disperse the crowd.
Police spokesman Fred Andrews said 16 youths were detained and later collected by their parents while others left the party on Robinson Road, in Perth’s east.
“Extremely loud music could be heard coming from the residence, with youths and vehicles causing congestion in the street,” Mr Andrews said.
Police declared the party out of control and asked attendees to leave.
After arriving at about 8pm after reports of loud music, several partygoers refused to leave and turned hostile, throwing bottles at police.
The dog squad, mounted police and 21 police units were required to calm the crowd.
Police said enquiries are ongoing and further charges could be laid, including against the party organisers.
Noble Park Party Out Of Control
More than 20 police officers and three police dogs were called to an out-of-control party in Noble Park on May 11. Police took 45 minutes to disperse about 150 party-goers from a Corrigan Road home after several complaints of fights and loud music. Acting Detective Sergeant Luke Kirton of Greater Dandenong crime investigation unit said police used capsicum spray to control several brawls. Several people were arrested for drunkenness and others were served with penalty notices for not moving away from the scene. Detective Kirton urged people to register large parties with police beforehand so police could ensure “appropriate security” was in place.
