Nearly 150 people were arrested in Huntington Beach on Saturday night after a man’s TikTok video inviting people to his birthday party went viral and the city was overrun with unruly revelers, prompting authorities to issue an emergency overnight curfew, police said.

The event, dubbed Adrian’s kickback, drew at least 2,500 people, the Huntington Beach Police Department said in a statement.

The 121 adults and 28 juveniles arrested Saturday night will face charges of vandalism, failure to disperse, curfew violations and fireworks offenses, police said.

Most recently during coronavirus stay-at-home orders, the area saw regular “curfew breaker” demonstrations in which people gathered to protest the restrictions.

Brock, who has lived in downtown Huntington Beach for 11 years, knows that Saturday’s unrest will probably feed the city’s reputation for raucous crowds, but she doesn’t think it’s reflective of living there.
