California:182 Arrested After Busting Two ‘Superspreader’ Events

Los Angeles County officials arrested 182 people attending two underground “superspreader” events in a massive crackdown to curb the surge in coronavirus cases.

The arrests were made by the department’s “superspreader task force” at two locations confirmed to be commercial buildings Saturday night.

In a tweet, the department said Sheriff Alex Villanueva has made it clear he will seek out and take action against “all underground party events occurring anywhere within Los Angeles County.”

Photos of the arrests posted by the sheriff’s department show large groups of party goers wearing face masks, and others without them.

KTTV reported one of the events was a “swinger’s party” in South Central Los Angeles. Officers busted the event by shouting on speakers from their squad cars, ‘The party’s over!’
