A massive party was shutdown on Saturday in Highland Park because of overcapacity and underage drinking.
Authorities say they were tipped off about the event at on Old Skokie Road by a parent concerned by the number of kids that were there.
According to an estimated 800 teens were in the building, with approximately another 150 outside.
Officers say they quickly determined “the premises was over capacity” and observed several minors with some level of alcohol intoxication. Authorities believe most of the youth in attendance were from the North Shore.
The party was shutdown and six allegedly intoxicated minors completed juvenile cards.
Apparently the warehouse is occasionally rented out for youth parties that feature music. Security was also on the premises at the time.
Authorities say this is the first time they’ve had to break up a party at this venue because of overcrowding. However, due to Saturday’s event they’re currently investigating whether or not laws and ordinances are being followed.
