Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer filed a misdemeanor complaint today against TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Blake Gray.

Feuer claims the two were in violation of both the municipal code and the “Safer LA” Emergency Declaration when they allegedly threw a large party earlier this month.

“If you have a combined 19 million followers on TikTok, in the middle of a public health crisis, you should be modeling great behavior — best practices for all of us — rather than brazenly violating the law and then posting videos about it as we allege happened here,” Feuer said.

Hall and Gray share a home that they rent on Appian Way in the Hollywood Hills, the city attorney said.

Feuer said the city issued a citation after LAPD officers responded to a party at the home. He alleges that officers returned to the house less than a week later, on August 14, after there was a call claiming shots were fired. Police did not find any evidence of a gun.

After warnings were issued for the parties, Mayor Eric Garcetti ordered the power shut off at the home.

“We allege these hosts have been incredibly irresponsible with a highly-infectious disease spreading,” Feuer said.

Individuals listed as representatives for Bryce Hall did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Feuer also announced charges against two homeowners, alleging their properties have been the sources of “numerous community complaints.” He said the penalty for the homeowners could be up to a year in jail and thousands of dollars in fines. A party house ordinance lays out possible fines.

Hillside neighborhoods have for years struggled to control wild gatherings at so-called party houses. And residents there say the problem has gotten worse since the pandemic started.

Large parties at houses in the hills have resulted in two separate fatal shootings this month.
