Lavish Grammy Afterparty in Hollywood Hills Prompts Police Respose
Some 1,000 partygoers attended a post-Grammy bash in the Hollywood Hills that brought in CHP and police officers to help tow parked cars from the area’s curving streets early Monday, authorities said.
The cars were parked in the area of Mulholland Drive near Antelo Place in the Bel Air Estates neighborhood (map), where rapper Meek Mill had reportedly thrown a post-awards party in a rented mansion.
Photos on TMZ.com showed wild animals — including a camel and a caged lion — on display at the party.
Those in attendance included Diddy, Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Nelly and Bow Wow, the celebrity gossip website reported.
Los Angeles Police Department and California Highway Patrol officers responded to a home that was hosting approximately 1,000 guests, LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman said.
Vehicles were parked on both sides of the street, creating gridlock outside the party, Eisenman said.
CHP officers were called in to help LAPD get parked vehicles towed and clear the streets, she said. The scene was cleared shortly after 5 a.m.
Hundreds of partygoers walked down from the home to find their cars gone, TMZ.com reported.
The 56th Grammy Awards were held Sunday night at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
