Local Weekend Benefit Fundraiser as Seen on TMZ!

In the spirit of Independence Day, Venetian Andrew Keegan hosted a benefit fundraiser on Saturday for Falling Whistles, a non-profit with Venice roots that strives for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Stoked, a non-profit that brings action sports to under-served communities.

A neighbor reportedly complained about loud noise which brought the LAPD out in force and also ended up landing Andrew on TMZ  in the video seen here as well as in a statement made today.

From TMZ:

The “10 Things I Hate About You” actor tells TMZ … the event was more than a raging house party … it was also a fundraiser for three charities … adding, “The police chief knew about it … I employed 5 off-duty officers.”

Keegan says … when cops approached his Marina del Rey home and asked him to turn down the music, he WAS cooperative … even asking to speak to a sergeant “about how we can work together.”

But, Keegan explains, [the sergeant] ordered ‘arrest him’ while my hands were in my pocket … but they just wanted to make an example of their ‘No Tolerance’ Independence Day [policy].

Ironically it was “The Makepeace Brothers” that were playing music as the party was shut down.
