A giant rave at the Nash Dance Center in Randolph NJ apparently got so out of control that one teenage partygoer ended up at a local hospital.
The party was promoted by “Teen Pulse Nightlife.” Police were concerned that the event could get out of hand. Prior to the party, which was dubbed the “Hyper Glow” party, Randolph police suggested to organizers that they should cancel the event. Nonetheless, organizers went ahead with the event, and 1,000 tickets were sold.
Randolph’s zoning officer also warned the owners of the dance center that they would be in violation of township codes because the zoning in the building’s area does not allow for these kinds of events.
Authorities anticipated problems, so several Randolph police officers and the Randolph fire official arrived at the venue before the party began. Within two hours, several intoxicated teens had to be removed from the event. According to police, some of the partygoers were so intoxicated that they were vomiting on themselves. One female teen had to be taken to a local hospital by EMS and paramedics.
Sometime later, the building’s fire alarm went off, requiring the dance center to be evacuated. At that point, police determined that they could not guarantee the safety of the event’s patrons, so they shut down the party.
Although no criminal charges were filed, the dance center owners were issued several zoning summonses.
