3. Police discovered the raucous rager in Brampton, Ontario, on Twitter, where it was being promoted through the hashtag #MansionParty.

The homeowner’s son had permission to throw a party, but “not of this magnitude,” Peel Regional Police Sgt. Darcy North told the Toronto Sun. After “one of the home’s occupants” called, police shut down the event.

9. One teen, a 16-year-old named Nick, told The Record he had only seen parties like this in the movies. He said after he heard about the party on social media, he arrived to see a line 200 cars deep.

“There were hundreds of people here,” he said. “Some people were climbing over ladders and smashing the windows. Some were drinking. Everyone wanted to get inside.”
