Andrew Poole threw a 30th birthday party in England with 17 of his closest friends. He ended up hosting a company of police with four police cars, a riot van, and a helicopter. The ultimate party crashers claims that they were “concerned” that the party was a rave because it was advertised on Facebook. Even when they found 15 people and a single barbecue, the police still shutdown the birthday party.
Eight officers stormed the party in camouflage and body armor as the helicopter hovered above. While this would seem an obvious embarrassment for the police, the department has actually insisted that it was right to storm the party in force: “We were extremely concerned how the event had been advertised on the internet as an all-night party.”
