A Californian dad has been arrested after throwing a Playboy Mansion-style party for his daughter, dubbed “Liv’s Playboy Mansion,” at which lingerie-clad underage teens in their hundreds consumed alcohol, among other things.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies say 150 to 200 teens were at the party, and many of them were drinking alcohol, wearing only lingerie and bunny ears.
Poway High School student Olivia Lake’s dad, Jeff Lake, probably had the very “best” of intentions for his daughter’s 18th on Friday night.
But it all spiraled from there when neighbors complaints led to a small army of sheriff’s deputies shutting the party down.
When the cops arrived, they found two unconscious, intoxicated teenage boys in the house and evidence many of the teens were drinking booze.
Jeff Lake was arrested and charged with violating Poway’s social host ordinance, which makes it illegal to host a party where underage individuals consume alcohol. It carries a maximum jail sentence of six months.
Poway Mayor Steve Vaus, who lives in the neighborhood, told reporters the following.
“You have a party like this and it’s as though you’re handing out hand grenades as party favors. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.”
The mayor added that he would like to see additional measures taken in the ordinance to dissuade people from hosting such parties.
“I’d like to put a scarlet letter in front of the homes of people that do this, to say you can’t trust these folks, they make bad decisions related to kids’ safety.”
Just a day after the party, Olivia Lake took to her Twitter feed to thank her guests for showing up, despite what ensued.
“Huge thanks to everyone who was able to be a part of last night! I hope you all had a damn good time and that you’re all okay and safe.”
