About 1,500 teens trashed an under-construction mansion in Ontario, Canada, after a party got out of hand when the Twitter invitation drew a large crowd.

A party that apparently started on Twitter attracted more than 2,000 revelers to an Ontario, Canada, mansion on Friday, resulting in officers getting assaulted and dozens of arrests.

The Brampton Guardian reports that the party grew quickly as people were encouraged to come to the empty mansion via social media.

Police reportedly received the first noise complaint at about 9:50 p.m. Friday. More than 60 tactical and K-9 units responded throughout the night for backup with officers on the scene until 5 a.m. Saturday.

As police tried to clear out the mansion, some were assaulted, resulting in arrests.

Thomas Ruttan, a law enforcement official in the Peel Region of Ontario, said the homeowner apparently organized the party and no one was arrested for trespassing although a substantial amount of damage was done to the property.

"We want to make the public aware that social media may not be the best place to advertise the party,” Ruttan told the Brampton Guardian, “simply because we're not really aware of just how far-reaching social media really is."
