This case stems from a party hosted this summer for rapper YFN Lucci that Atlanta police had to shut down, Channel 2 reported. Oduwole said he was told the gathering would be for a small party.
“I’ve made it very clear that I wasn’t aware of that and didn’t agree to it,” he said.
A third person tied to the case, Clifton LaCour, pleaded guilty to noise ordinance and false statement to police charges. LaCour, a DJ, received a $1,000 fine and six months of unsupervised probation, Channel 2 reported. He also agreed to testify about the house parties and everyone’s roles in them.
The home has been the target of party house legislation being considered by the Atlanta City Council. The legislation would ban party houses in residential areas and better enforce existing rules. It is illegal to use a residence for commercial purposes, so by charging an entrance fee, the house parties are already illegal.
“I do feel like I’ve been a target,” Oduwole told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution of the legislation. “If someone does want to have a party in their house, there’s no law against it.”
