“It was worth it” Says host of massive house party with at least six drug overdoses

A Michigan man decided to throw a party at his Mecosta County home as a birthday party for a friend, but it quickly grew to over 2,000 people. James Taylor, 20, also said the party was a goodbye party as he moves to California.

With so many people in attendance, Taylor said people were unable to move from room to room and the floor shook from all the extra weight. Police say there were at least six drug overdoses and a reported sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman.

“People could have been laying out in my yard dead this morning,” said Taylor. “I’m glad the police were here and the ambulances.”

“What do you say to anyone who says you are responsible?” asked FOX 17.

“I am. It’s my house,” answered Taylor. “You got to deal with it afterwards, but apparently it was worth it.”

When asked about underage people at the party, he said their parents should be held accountable.
