Cops bust boozy Bronx party ignoring coronavirus social distancing rules

More than a dozen partygoers were busted when cops broke up a boozy Bronx shindig that was flouting social distancing rules, police and sources said Saturday.

Police were called to a loud party at Mango Jamaican Cuisine restaurant in Wakefield at about 7 p.m. Friday, where several dozen people were drinking and celebrating, ignoring coronavirus rules limiting social gatherings, officials said.

When officers tried to break up the group, two restaurant employees tried to block them from entering the building, telling the cops there was nothing going on.

Officers arrested both would-be bouncers, identified as Dionne Warren, 49, and Bryan O’Shea, 34, and charged them with operating an unlicensed club, violation of local law, disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration, authorities said.

More than a dozen other partygoers were also hit with a summons for violating the city’s social distancing rule, sources told The Post.
