bigger event at a public
beach on the shores of
Lake Constance.
The newspaper said
thousands had signed up to
attend, clicking the ‘join’
button, but town leaders
banned it in advance.
Nearly 300 police were
dispatched to prevent
revelers from gaining
access to the beach area.
Only about 150 people
showed up and eight who
refused to leave were
detained.
“I had been to some other
illegal Facebook parties and
thought to myself ‘I can do
better than this’,” Matthias
L. told Bild am Sonntag.
The newspaper said he
earns about 560 euros a
month but will now have to
reimburse the city and
police 227,052 euros.
“When I look at the bill I
feel ill,” Matthias L. said.
Guenter Loos, an official at
the Baden-Wuerttemberg
state interior ministry, said
the state will insist on
reimbursement.
“We’re definitely going to
collect these fees in
accordance with state
rules,” he said.
