Ontario Police Broke Up A Massive 100-Person Student House Party Yesterday (VIDEO)

People got charged by police.

A party has led to charges this long weekend. A massive student gathering was called into Waterloo Police on Monday, and there were over 100 people attending. The Waterloo house party ended in three individuals getting charged, according to authorities. 

In a Tuesday news release, Waterloo Regional Police confirmed that over 100 people had gathered at a residence on Hickory Street West. 

The house is located just off-campus to Wilfrid Laurier University and the gathering was reported to be a student party.

Police responded to the incident at 10 p.m. on Monday night, according to their statement.

Both Waterloo Police as well as city bylaw officers arrived on the scene to break up the gathering. 

Three people were charged under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act by Waterloo bylaw officers.

Narcity has reached out to officials for more information.

Since the incident, authorities have spoken out about the situation and sent out another reminder asking people to respect physical distancing rules.

"Please do not gather in large groups. Abide by @ROWPublicHealth guidelines. Do it for yourself, your family, friends, and your community," says a tweet from Waterloo Regional Police

Last week, Doug Ford begged students returning to class not to have large functions. 

"No parties when you go back to college and university," he said in a Wednesday press conference.

"I feel like a dad preaching to the kids and I don't want to be that way but it's critical," said Ford.

It looks like that advice was not taken to heart by students eager to get out of their social bubbles this fall. 

However, the message was directed not only at students but to the rest of Ontario as well. 

Just before the long weekend, Ford addressed residents of Brampton specifically, as well as others, regarding backyard house parties.

“Anyone who is thinking of having a big shindig this weekend: forget about it, cancel it! Or we won’t hesitate to shut it down,” warned Ford.
