Three Tennessee women, including a registered nurse, are facing criminal charges after hosting a major Halloween house party that attended at least 100 guests.
Madilyn Dennington, Bailey Mills and Olivia Noe, who are all roommates and 23 years old each, were all given felony charges for their October 31st party that took place at their home in East Nashville.
Officers responded to a complaint about a gathering at the house around 6:30 p.m. after neighbors heard loud music and several people standing outside the house.

By the time the police arrived, they were counting more than 100 people both inside and outside the property.
At the time, the restrictions of the coronavirus allowed no more than 25 people to congregate in one location at a time, unless the homeowner had obtained a special waiver from the city, which Dennington, Mills and Noe are not.
After being made aware of the rules, the women went back in and told everyone to leave.
Police alerted Nashville Metro Health officials who confirmed they had not received an “ event request ” for the meeting.

Particular attention has been paid to Dennington, a registered nurse at TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville.
The hospital is considering disciplinary action against her.
“Following pandemic regulations correctly is extremely important to help reduce the spread of COVID-19,” Anna-Lee Cockrill, a TriStar spokeswoman, said of the party. “We’re investigating this further.”
At least dozens of people have been arrested on felony charges after holding major house parties and events, according to The Tennessean.
Some of the big house parties and events would have hosted as many as 600 people. If convicted, the perpetrators could face a year in prison and a fine of $ 2,500.
Since the end of October, restrictions in the city have been further tightened, with only eight people allowed to congregate at a time, compared to the previous limit of 25 people.
On Monday, tougher restrictions on the capacity of local restaurants also came into effect.
Since the pandemic began, 425 people in Nashville have died from the virus, with 4,688 deaths in the state of Tennessee.
