The party boasted a crowd of 165 people, an unlicensed bar and a DJ booth, law enforcement officials said. The party was found to allegedly be in violation of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order barring non-essential mass gatherings.
Party-goers quickly left without incident after the deputies shut down the shindig.
Deputies issued Jose Lopez, a 41-year-old security guard from the Bronx, a fine of $1,000 for failing to protect health and safety.
