Utah County Raids Rave Under False Pretense
According to the statement released by the Utah County Sherriff's Office, "Utah County mass gathering ordinance prohibits the gathering of two hundred and fifty or more persons without a permit, bond, and Utah County Commission approval." As I found out through Charley Foster, this statement is FALSE. The actual ordinance only covers events expected to last 12 hours or more. As it turns out, the ravers did not actually need the permit that supposedly triggered the raid. From the UC statement: "It was verified that more than 250 individuals were at the party, in violation of county statutes and by 11:30 pm law enforcement personnel moved in to curtail and disburse the party."
