Authorities Break Up 700-Person Party At Ocean County Airbnb, Jackson Police Say

JACKSON, N.J. (CBS) -- Massive parties, like one in Ocean County that Jackson police broke up Sunday night, are becoming a big problem in New Jersey. An estimated 700 people showed up for a huge gathering on Mill Pond Road.

Police say the homeowner rented the house as an Airbnb.

The party caused a neighborhood disturbance and violated a coronavirus executive order by having too many attendees.

The homeowner and two party organizers were issued summonses.

In a statement, Airbnb condemned the party.

"We strongly condemn the reported behavior, which represents both a clear violation of Airbnb's community policies and a particularly serious abuse during this public health crisis."
