NY Sheriff breaks up wedding with 250 people

A New York City wedding ended in disaster Friday night after cops busted the illicit gathering of almost 300 guests and took the venue owner into custody, according to local reports.

After receiving an anonymous complaint, the New York City Sheriff’s Department broke up the wedding at the Royal Elite Palace in Woodside, Queens just before midnight, NBC News New York reported. Upon entering the hall, filled with mask-less guests in formal wear, deputies found “large groups of people entering the location through what appears to be an indoor parking area as well as loud music coming from the location.”

Citing law enforcement sources, the New York Post said at least 240 guests were present and the venue was serving food, alcohol, and playing live music. NBC reported that 284 guests were sent home from the wedding.

In an attempt to curtail the coronavirus pandemic, state and city officials have banned gatherings of more than 50 people—and every person in New York is supposed to wear a face mask when social distancing isn’t possible.

Both the owner and manager of the venue were taken into custody and slapped with appearance tickets for six misdemeanors, including disobeying the city’s coronavirus orders, serving liquor without a license and not providing multiple points of entry, the two outlets reported.
