Busted: Massive Teen Party Based On 'Project X' Movie

More than 25,000 invites were sent to area teens using social media sites. The bash was allegedly based on the movie "Project X."

Word of mega teen party spread like wildfire on Facebook and Twitter this week, but the invite reached one too many: the cops.

According to the Facebook page called F*** It Up Fridays, a massive party in Perris in which more than 25,000 invites were sent to teens throughout the Southland was busted before it got started tonight.

Deputy Angel Ramos of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that police “were fully aware” of the bash, but said he could not provide details of the operation. He did confirm no arrests had been made at press time.

Word of the police intercept spread quickly on social media sites, with messages flying across both Twitter and Facebook Friday night. Some messages indicate the party was being moved to Lake Elsinore, however Deputy Ramos would not provide details about what police are hearing.

According to one teen who asked to remain anonymous, the party was big talk on high school campuses all over Southwest Riverside County this week. More than 3,000 people confirmed they were going to the party, and more than 1,000 confirmed with a “maybe” on the event’s Facebook page.

It’s unclear which individuals or organizations came up with the idea to throw the party, but according to the Facebook page the bash was based on the movie “Project X.” The film is about a group of friends who set out to throw “the most epic 17th birthday party ever.” Click the attached video to see a trailer of the movie. WARNING: The trailer may not be appropriate for children.

According to the teen source, Friday night’s party was a birthday celebration.

“Cracks @ 8 p.m. and will go until the sun rises!” read one post on the Facebook page.

The bash was allegedly going to feature alcohol. Deputy Ramos reminded the public that adults who supply alcohol to minors can be held criminally liable, and the seriousness increases if there is an injury or death.

The deputy said people who want to throw large-scale events must obtain a county permit and follow the law.

So you leave the word F*** out of the article but then include it in the Related Topics section? Something wrong here!

All we wanna do ia party. teens are not the pnly drunk drivers in the world. Theres nothing else to do here!!

Leilani - you really shouldn't be talking then, you need to read up on the last 3 weeks of teenage drivers driving and cause fatal accidents cause by drinking, I personally know 2 of them and one died in the accident, if you really care about drinking that much then.follow the law and do it responsible.. it's really not that hard. And for the others saying about leaving the F*** word in it, it was the name of the party,so of course they put it in the title, I wish the people who think they can get away with trying to throw a party would realize that its not that hard to get a permit. And be a lil smarter about how to get the word out...

Just try to get a permit for a party of that size. It can be done if you have at least 6 months and 100k for fees, just look at GO when they tried to put together an event for Halloween with only 6 weeks notice. Shut down before they got started. The percentage of irresponsible teens is no higher than the irresponsible adults out there. Dream Extreme, what a joke.

Ken wants to see a bunch of drunk high school kids. The city wouldn't let them get a permit anyways.

Your right. But the kids doing Naz 2,000 teens is just asking for trouble

Wow, all fun and games until someone gets seriously hurt, drinks and drives, overdoses, and the list of all the things that could go wrong is endless. Biggest party catering to teenage drinking??? It's all cool till someone dies. The party planners are probably teens themselves. Where the heck are the parents in all this?
