A Southern California man was taken into custody by deputies Friday for throwing a Playboy Mansion-themed birthday party for his 18-year-old daughter, reports The Daily Mail.
The alcohol-fueled party, which was reportedly attended by hundreds of teenagers, was held at the home of Olivia Lake in Poway, California.
10News reported that the girl’s father Jeff Lake, who works as a lawyer in the medical marijuana field, was arrested by deputies for social host ordinance violation charges.
There were reportedly two unconscious, underage teens inside of the Lake’s home, and several with alcoholic beverages in hand, when deputies arrived on scene.
“That [social host] ordinance makes it illegal to host a party where underage individuals consume alcohol. It comes with a possible 6-month jail sentence,” reported 10News.
Instagram photos, via 10News, later revealed “Liv’s Playboy Mansion” female party attendees flaunting bunny ears and racy costumes as they celebrated their friends special day.
Mayor Steve Vaus spoke of the events to the news outlet, “You have a party like this and it’s as though you’re handing out grenades as party favors. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.”
I’d like to put a scarlet letter in front of the homes of people that do this, to say you can’t trust these folks, they make bad decisions related to kids’ safety.
10News also referenced a tweet that the girl’s mother Jacki Lake, who was once the acting president of the parent-teacher association at the local high school, sent out ahead of the shindig.
She reportedly called her daughter “the baddest b**** in town” and in the same message wrote,”Now don’t get arrested.”
Although the girl’s Twitter account is set to private, the station was able to access a message she wrote to her followers.
“Huge thanks to everyone who was able to be a part of last night! I hope you all had a damn good time and that you’re all okay and safe,” she said.
