Posted: Updated:

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho- The rental company says the home was rented by a man in his mid-twenties who told them he was using the home to propose to his girlfriend. The company had him sign documents stating he would not host an alcohol-fueled party. They say he was interviewed in person multiple times and was very well spoken. The company was shocked to find out he hosted a party and that more than 200 people were there when police arrived.

The party was advertised through social media. There was even a Facebook page created for the event. Idaho Police say they found out about the party being advertised online and after investigating served a search warrant at the home around 9:30 p.m. Friday night. After SWAT arrived, some people at the party took "selfies" with SWAT Officers in the background.
