Police from two counties Sunday dispersed about 300 people from a pop-up party that was promoted through social media and hosted in a residential Howell neighborhood, authorities said.
Township officers called for assistance from police in Wall, Brick, Jackson and Freehold along with state troopers and sheriffs officers from Monmouth and Ocean counties to break up the massive gathering on Wilson Drive in the Ramtown neighborhood.
Most of the attendees are compliant. Others are hesitant and are directing their anger towards the host who charged admission, police said in a statement shortly after 7 p.m.
PRIVATE Location in CENTRAL Jersey...Advance Tixs...Females $30.00 Male $40.00, an Instagram post advertising the event read. The post mentioned a DJ and pool party as part of the festivities. The online flier called the party the Real Big Drip 5.
Only residents were being allowed on the street as officers worked to clear party-goers. Police said more details would be released later.
Last month, police charged three people with violating Gov. Phil Murphys coronavirus order barring large gatherings after officers broke up a party with at least 700 attendees in Jackson.
Outdoor gatherings can have up to 500 attendees while maintaining social distancing as of early July.
Murphy tightened limits on indoor gatherings last week after the state saw increasing numbers of young people who tested positive for the illness. The governor pointed to the Jackson mansion party, in part, as an example of why he moved to limit indoor events.
We cannot be any clearer that indoor gatherings especially large, crowded ones, where social distancing isnt being practiced and face masks arent being worn are not safe, Murphy said last week. To be clear, this tightening caps house parties at 25 people period. Howell party

I’m a chick today. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Let me in!
I had a pop up party at my house. I was talking about the first thing that popped up and then we had a party.
That’s because I’ve seen gun fights in Brownsville Brooklyn. They shoot basically at the ground behind them while running.
Amazing anybody ever gets killed

Would the founders view the above quote as permissable for the good of the people or would they find this tyrannical?
We are laying our freedoms at the feet of a virus, and it is astonishing to witness. But as history has shown us time and time again, great nations fall due to decadence and rot from within.
DISPATCHER: "Need a unit to respond to xxx xxth Avenue, NW. Caller states there is a large party next door, very loud, a large number of people in both front yards and in the road, blocking traffic."
POLICE UNIT: "10-4, en route."
DISPATCHER: "Be advised that the complaintant states nobody at the adjacent address speaks English."
POLICE UNIT: *sigh* "10-4."
In a town of 12K residents. Yep. It just happened.
The Founding Fathers probably wouldn’t approve of one jackass filling several streets with the wagons and buggies for one family’s party with no advance notice.
Imagine living nearby and trying to find parking...
They forgot to post the protest signs...
