A Student Party Was Busted Over The Weekend & At Least $83k In Fines Was Handed Out

The party is over people! At least that's the case for a Quebec Airbnb party over the weekend that ended with the police department breaking up the huge student get-together.  

But not without dishing out $1,000 fines to a whopping 83 people first. 

According to Quebec's MRC des Collines police on Twitter, they broke up the gathering that saw 83 students partying it up at an Airbnb in Chelsea over the weekend.

$83,000 In fines for students partying at an Airbnb in Quebec

Sgt. Martin Fournel, told CTV that neighbours first reported the event at approximately 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Police said "foreign national" students organized the party via social media with attendees believed to have come down from other places such as Ottawa, Montreal, Sherbrooke, and Trois-Rivières.

Thanks to the spontaneous shindig, the partygoers were each left with fines that come with a $1,000 price tag, adding up to $83,000 in total fines.

MRC des Collines de l'Outaouais had become a red zone only a week prior as a result of COVID-19 cases soaring, per the report. 

There has been 2,264 COVID-19 cases and 40 deaths in the region since the virus started up.

This also comes after Airbnb made the decision not to book one-night rentals on Halloween in a bid to curb partygoers.  

The San Francisco-based company isn't taking any risks this season and has since cracked down on parties in the country.
