Santa Monica Man Fined for Hosting Glendora Party

Santa Monica resident Davante Bell fined $1,450 by Glendora police

By Toi Creel

A Santa Monica man is facing fines for organizing an illegal mansion party in Glendora last weekend.

26-year-old Davante Bell was fined $1,450 after refusing to comply with orders from Glendora police that called for him to cancel the “100 Summers Mansion Party” party on August 22.

According to Glendora police, the party violated the City code and the Los Angeles County Health Department Order for non-essential gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.

It included “musical guests” and “off-site bus transportation”.

Bell was warned prior to the event that he needed to cancel, but instead held the party and shut it down a little after midnight when police were preparing the citation.

The $1,450 fine Bell received was broken down into two separate citations: a $450 fine for an unidentified violation and a $1,000 fine for violating the hosting guidelines prohibiting large gatherings.

In addition to Bell’s fine, another person unrelated to the party planning was arrested for a misdemeanor bench warrant. Police also gave out five vehicle code violations, 19 parking tickets and impounded one vehicle.

This isn’t Bell’s first run-in with police.

He is a registered sex offender and his criminal record starts back in 2013 from a robbery and an attempted robbery case. According to court records, he was sentenced to three years probation as an accessory to the crime. He also pled guilty to attempted robbery in October 2016 and spent two years in state prison.

Bell was also arrested in September 2019 for running a check forging scam out of Thousand Oaks. He stole around $8,000 from eight victims ranging in age from 16 to 21.

In addition to the fine by police, Glendora officials are also coming after Bell with administrative fines and fees and potential litigation against him and the actual owner of the home.
