L.A. Files Charges Against Party-Throwers

Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer has charged two TikTok stars for holding large parties in the Hollywood Hills in violation of local health orders.

The two individuals, Blake Gray and Bryce Hal, could get up to a year in jail, plus a $2,000 fine. Power was already cut to the home on Aug. 19.
