Party hosted by Cleveland Cavaliers Dion Waiters had drug use; Needed 24 cops to shut it down

They say any press is good press. I’m not sure that’s exactly true for Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters this go around.

The forth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft was scheduled to host a party in Perkasie, Pennsylvania earlier this month, about thirty or so miles outside of Philadelphia where Waiters is from.

The party wasn’t scheduled to have more than 100 people nor was there to be any alcohol as the town pool, where the party was hosted, forbids it.

But people like to break the rules and the party, which again wasn’t expected to have over 100 people had over 700 guests and there were reports of drug use at the ‘birthday party’.


A recent party thrown at a Perkasie town pool reportedly hosted by Cleveland Cavaliers guard and Philadelphia native Dion Waiters was supposed to draw 100 people. More than 700 came. Worse, say residents, according to two media reports, they used booze, and plenty of it, at the Menlo Aquatics Center. Alcohol is a no-no at the borough-owned pool in Bucks County, about 30 miles north of Philadelphia. It’s also suspected there was drug use, although there were no arrests. Party-goers allegedly even shoved lifeguards into the pool. A crowd of angry Perkasie residents packed a borough meeting last night outraged at the private party, and demanded answers as to how the town could have given permission for the event to occur on borough grounds, according to reports on the PhillyBurbs and NBC10 websites.

The party grew so out-of-control that 24 officers from around the area were called by midnight on Aug. 11 to keep the chaos down, according to PhillyBurbs.

There’s been no word if Waiters, who was scheduled to host, attended the party.

    I am not a fan of Dion Waiters at all. I absolutely hated that the Cavs drafted him and nothing has happened to change my mind. I am truly hoping, with all that is within me, that Cleveland packages him this season in a deal for a starting 2-guard – one who can actually shoot and one who is a better fit on that team
