Nine party organizers in New York City faced misdemeanor charges after they hosted an illegal Halloween party with nearly 400 people.

On Saturday morning, The New York City Sheriff’s Department broke up the event in Brooklyn, N.Y.  for violating the state’s emergency social-distancing and large-gathering rules.

The sheriff’s department watched about 150 people enter the party with surveillance cameras before busting the event.

Earlier this week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the rise in coronavirus cases is worrisome and the city may install more restrictions soon.
