NEWPORT BEACH — As many as 15 homes were tagged were made in connection with a new anti-party ordinance in Newport Beach over the holiday weekend, police said Monday. [Correction: An earlier version incorrectly said the total number of arrests made were connected to the anti-party ordinance.]
The city of Newport Beach passed an ordinance last month that would tag "loud and unruly party houses" in the town — with hefty fines if citations are given on holiday weekends.
The ordinance targets gatherings of eight or more people in a home that are deemed "loud and unruly" by police.
The red tags would remain on offending houses for six months.
They would also come with fines for both party attendees and home owners, depending on whether it is first-time or a repeat violation.
