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.
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.
While many Los Angeles residents were looking up at the sky to see the International Space Station pass over at 8:45 p.m., here in Venice there was a low level flyby of an “AceShip” near 26th and Ocean Front Walk at 9:12 p.m.! Amazing!
