Teen house party draws 400, causes ruckus in Plymouth Township
A house party spun out of control and drew a crowd estimated by police at 400 after a 16-year-old Plymouth Township girl was home alone while her family was in California.
One female party-goer was found unconscious, but breathing, and was taken to St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia for treatment, a police report said.
Police Chief Tom Tiderington said word of the party likely spread on social media and left the teen host unable to control it. Party-goers fled in all directions when police arrived shortly after 12:30 a.m. Saturday at the Plymouth Country Club Village subdivision, near Ann Arbor Road and Napier.
"She wasn't supposed to have a party," Tiderington said, adding later, "A party can start out with five, 10, 20 people, but once it gets on Twitter or wherever, the house fills up quickly. Next thing you know, she can't do anything."
