Los Angeles Cuts Utilities On Pandemic 'Party House' In Hollywood Hills

The city of Los Angeles and Mayor Eric Garcetti have shut off utility service for a Hollywood Hills home that continually hosted large parties amid the ongoing pandemic. The gatherings violated public health orders instituted in the city to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

"Despite several warnings, this house has turned into a nightclub in the hills, hosting large gatherings in flagrant violation of our public health orders," Mayor Garcetti said in a news release. "The City has now disconnected utilities at this home to stop these parties that endanger our community."

"If we wish to reopen more businesses, return our kids to school, or get back to our normal lives, we must continue to wear masks, wash our hands frequently, and as we're emphasizing today, avoid gathering with others. All of these actions save lives," Garcetti added.

On August 5, Garcetti announced he would allow the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to disconnect utility services at homes that consistently and flagrantly violate the public health orders. The Hollywood Hills home that lost utility services on Thursday (August 20) is the first to face these consequences under Garcetti's executive order.

CNN reports that the home is owned by TikTok star Bryce Hall, however, Los Angeles authorities would not comment on this matter. The authorities did tell CNN that the owner received two formal warnings before utility access was cut. It's unclear when the home will regain power.
