Law enforcement shut down block party

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Some people in Moultrie wonder why dozens of officers showed up to shut down a block party they say wasn't causing any trouble.       

The man who threw the party in the 900 block of Second Avenue Northwest last night paid for a permit from the city. Police were there to block off the street.  Witnesses say more than 30 Moultrie Police, Colquitt County Sheriff's, and Georgia State Patrol vehicles swarmed the area.      They say officers shut down the party and threatened to write tickets for people parked at a church.  

"It was going nice like I said until the police came and they didn't give no warning or nothing. They just came with their machos and did what they wanted to do," said Thomas Kinsley.       

The man who organized the party didn't want to talk to us on camera, but he told us the city today refunded the money he paid for his permit.
