‘Mansion Pool Party’ Draws Over 1,000 People to Milton Home

On Friday night, Milton Police responded to 4 Mark Lane where between 1,000 and 1,500 people were attending the “Make it Nasty Mansion Pool Party.”

Last weekend the broke up a party at a Milton residence that was attended by between 1,000 and 1,500 people. Police and other departments are looking into the event, which was held at 4 Mark Lane on Friday, Aug. 31, into Saturday, Sept. 1.

The event, which promotional fliers called the “Make it Nasty Mansion Pool Party,” was held in the enclosed pool house at the Mark Lane residence.

“They had a party and sold tickets to get in there,” said Deputy Chief Charles Paris, who called the size of the event, “just astounding.”

According to Twitter promotions of the party, tickets were sold for between $15 and $20 per person.

Broz 4 Lyfe and Bed Rock Bros. jointly presented the party.

Paris said police took about an hour and a half to break up the event after one or two residents complained about noise and parking.

The MPD is considering filing a complaint against homeowner Steven Mathieu for permitting a nuisance by allowing others to sell alcohol.

According to Paris, the only illegal activity was the sale of alcohol at the event.

Milton’s building and health departments are looking into the party as well, Paris said. The occupancy of the pool house may violate building code and the health department typically sets occupancy restrictions for pools.

According to Paris, the homeowner was at the event and said he allowed a fundraiser to take place at his pool.

The town and MPD shouldn't be surpised about this. Steven Mathieu, the owner of the house has been hosting these parties for profit for over a year. The town and MPD haven't done anything to stop this. Adam, keep digging and ask questions. You'll learn more. It won't be difficult.

Oh come on people, are parties strictly off limits now? Should we go ahead and outlaw dancing and books while we are at it?
Adam Roberts (Editor) September 07, 2012 at 09:37 PM
Levi brings up an interesting point. How do people feel about this party in a private residence?
pilotb777 September 07, 2012 at 10:03 PM
Levi, post your address and let me host a party of ~1500 next to where you live and then tell us again how that isn't a problem.
Tazandra September 07, 2012 at 11:14 PM
As long as they weren't annoying neighbors with loud music n parking issues I don't see a problem, but they did. Maybe addressing the party with the neighbors prior to hosting the event would've kept the complaints from happening. Let the neighbors come for free.

Few facts reported, but neighbors and the PD should also consider obvious Milton zoning bylaws.
Leeda September 09, 2012 at 03:25 AM
I think that party was perfectly fine in my eyes ! What people aren't allowed to have party's anymore ? Neighbors need to relax it was a weekend and not a weekday I'm pretty sure No One had to work ! I see nothing wrong wit having a Pool Party in the area if it's his house ! Are any of u paying his bills I think not !!!

But this was a not a private party, it was an event that required payment to gain entry, once inside there was a cash bar. Anyone checking ID's, any security, any permits pulled? 1000 / 1500 in attendance equal 500 cars, parking where exactly, there are no designated lots? According to police reports they filled up surrounding streets, wonder if anyone's aware of the space required to allow emergency services like fire engines access? It's a simple case of an illegal business venture carried out in a residential zone.

oh noes! black people having fun ... better call PoPo ...

If you do not have a dancing license in the city of Boston at a Bar, club or establishment that legally sells alcohol you will be shut down by abcc. So yes dancing is outlawed. I have seen the city of Boston enforce this.
duddly do right September 10, 2012 at 10:42 PM
This was not "just a party". This was a money making event at a private residence with 1000 people attending. The neighbors have a right to be upset. Their peace and quiet was disturbed. They live in neighborhood not next to a club or a bar. If the gentleman who owns the house wants to run a dance club he should buy one and run a business.

Is this the Harvard Business School Grad that works at Novartis Pharmacueticals? Wonder what the company thinks about this classy little shin-dig. Party all you like, but use some common sense...don't host an event without permits or insurance where someone could get hurt/drown and you'll be held liable.
R S Broadbend September 11, 2012 at 02:37 AM
a couple of points. 1 This party was in a private residence but this dope did not have the courtesy odf alerting his neighbors, providing security or obtaining proper permits. 2 Where were the Milton PD the night of the party?. how were they suprised when 1500 people just " appeared " at 4 Mark Lane. Someone seems to asleep at the watch. Pretty pathetic . Send this Mathieu idiot a bill for all the police costs associated with shutting down this inconsiderate event. Maybe this will get his attention. He probably should also take a course in being a homeowner and a good neighbor.
Jared Williams September 11, 2012 at 11:54 AM
The problem is by charging you are making it a business not a party, if its a recommended donation its legal. Also they would avoid tons of issues to pay a police detail to be on site during the event.
Jared Williams September 11, 2012 at 12:00 PM
You have some good points, basically if you want to have a bigger than normal party you don't need permits unless its charged admission and or charging for beer. The basic rules to big parties is the following: 1. Pay for a police detail on site, avoids issues with complaints and provides coverage for any liability if underage people try to drink 2. Port-o-potties (house should be off limits and avoids occupancy issues) 3. Invite the neighbors, sure they likely wont show but invite them earlier than the main crowd and at least that way they know about it and are not left out. 4. Do not charge for anything, have recommended donations to cover the expenses, if you make a profit at the end of the night donate it. 5. NO FLYERS, word of mouth and people posting to other people is more than enough and keeps you from being liable for putting things to paper.

pilot777, what about what you and the police officer do on your off time? is that legal? what about the cops illegal 'booze makng' and selling out of their basements? yes, I know who you are...
corruptionkills September 11, 2012 at 01:37 PM
Many cops have bars that trooper bartend at until 5am, several are in Quincy. Is that legal ? Perhaps the cops should do something about those instead of bothering civilians at home. I've been to the cops bars so that's a fact and not a guess. They also have no problem leaving the bars and getting behind the wheel.
corruptionkills September 11, 2012 at 02:19 PM
They also have no problem entering womens homes and putting hidden surveillance in the bathrooms to watch the women shower, isn't that right MSP and Braintree....? Shall I elaborate sickos? For those of you who don't know, this is not done during their regular shifts but outside of work and they do this with private PI's on the SS who used to be police officers..... the unsuspecting women are put on live RSS feeds for all to view. The reason I'm posting this here is because several of the people commenting are the cops who do this.
AmandaReconwith September 11, 2012 at 07:10 PM
@capnbeer: the race card? Really? "PoPo"? The fact that over a thousand people show up at a private home and you see nothing inappropriate is scary. The Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport couldn't handle this many people much less a suburban house without police to direct traffic. Sounds like you're unfamiliar with this type of neighborhood.
corruptionkills September 11, 2012 at 07:39 PM
blah blah, whatever... "my hatred for them"... I have them in my family "dear" and have lived with one for ten years so I know what they do.....haha If you'd like I can supply the names to the after hours bars where you can find them drinking away and I can supply the name of the cop who crashed into a woman drunk and blamed her.....? Sticks and stones ......Mr Pilot. lol
pilotb777 September 11, 2012 at 08:30 PM
corruptionkills, You need help. Did you skip your meds today? You just don't get it. Your topic has nothing to do with this issue.
corruptionkills September 11, 2012 at 09:16 PM
@77..Nope, no meds and I've already explained why I posted off subject. Have another one....LOL
Margaret Carroll-Bergman (Editor) September 11, 2012 at 09:26 PM
Please stay on topic and be civil.
Curious George September 11, 2012 at 09:42 PM
Ok, I'll bite. How can you tell people who are posting here are cops?
carlisgoturback September 11, 2012 at 09:53 PM
who cares, stay on topic
carlisgoturback September 11, 2012 at 09:55 PM
Some people are so defensive over what others post and why...Who cares ? Right CG?
carlisgoturback September 11, 2012 at 10:05 PM
You sound very upset for some reason and your piloting has nothing to do with this party in Milton. So your 'crew' have encountered socially unacceptable and dangerous behaviors at airports and flights, corruption has also seen equally dangerous behavior with persons drinking all night and driving. What is the difference? Let it go, there's really no need to get so upset over it unless he struck a nerve with you. He may be posting off topic but so what?
Curious George September 11, 2012 at 10:22 PM
@carlisgoturback, if you read the thread @corruptionkills was basically saying @pilot is one of the cops he/she doesn't like or something to that nature. You're right though drinking and driving is a huge issue. How many designated drivers do you think were at this party?
R S Broadbend September 11, 2012 at 11:19 PM
Having fun ? Is this how black people have fun ? They should do themselves and Milton a favor and find another form of recreation. Before you throw out the race card, i'm pretty sure the police would react the same way if some white MENSA members were to organize and attend a "party" for 1500 without proper planning and police presence. I asked some friends who also grew up in milton and we were all in agreement that we had never even heard of something like this. Milton welcomes anyone that wants to play by the rules, idiots should find another place to party. .
