Upon exiting their cruisers, officers could instantly hear loud music emanating from a building located at 131 Tremont Street. Specifically, officers were able to determine that the music was coming from the 2nd floor of the location. Upon reaching the 2nd floor and entering the location, officers observed a large group (approximately 60 – 80 people) drinking and dancing. Upon locating the person responsible for the party, officers informed the individual that, due to several calls to 911 complaining about the noise, the party needed to come to an end. However, as partygoers were exiting the location, several began to get verbally combative and abusive towards the officers on scene. Said one partygoer, ”We don’t have to move .. we aint going anywhere.” In short time, a fight broke out between several individuals attending the party. Officers arrested Jemell Cole, 31, of Jersey City, NJ; Vincent Lanier, 26, of New York; William Eddins, 25, of Somerville; Jamel Mims, 22, of Washington, DC; Owen Lumadede, 22, of Boston and charged all five with Disturbing the Peace, Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest.
