Cypress: Partiers quiet down, or pay up

March 25, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
The city of Cypress has decided to get tough with rowdy, noisy parties.Beginning next month, people hosting those parties could be forced to pay $1,000 in fines if police have to return more than once to quiet the revelers down.

The new Cypress regulation says police will issue a "written warning" first. If they have to come back, it'll cost you.

Several other local cities have similar laws.
