What was supposed to be a low key night of fun quickly turned into a party that would go down in the books as legendary.
Michigan resident James Taylor planned to have a birthday party for his friend Saturday evening and to celebrate his move to California. His party drew 2,000 people to his family’s farm house.
Taylor told Fox 17 that his address was passed out at around 4 p.m. on Saturday. Crowds soon gathered at his house for the mega-rave.
The party wasn’t your average rager, though- it featured two DJs, a fire thrower, go-go dancers, and strippers.
He told Fox 17 that he hosted the biggest party West Michigan has ever witnessed. The house had so many people crammed in that they could not move from one room to the next and the floor boards were bouncing from the weight of the 2,000 ragers. Someone even drove the entire day from Tampa to party with Taylor at his party palace.
Hitting back at those who say Taylor is responsible for underage drinking, illegal substances, and the sexual assault incident that took place at his party, Taylor acknowledged that he hosted the party and will take blame for whatever charges he faces, but that parents and partygoers alike should have practiced self-restraint and vigilance.
"I didn’t force anything down anyone’s throat. I didn’t make anyone stay here until 7 a.m. or 11 a.m. or whenever it is that everyone finally left. I didn’t make this kid pass out on my floor (pointing to a man asleep on the floor). People wanted to be here that was their decision… I think some parents should do some reflections on their parenting before they start getting mad at me," he said. He added that he offered the 2,000 partygoers to spend the night at his house so they would not drive home intoxicated.
Though bottles of liquor are strewn about his yard, a random man passed out in his home, and the house trashed, Taylor said there is the possibility of another party. "There’s always a coming home party," he teased.
