YouTuber Austin McBroom Causes Unlawful Assembly, Rodeo Drive Closed Down by Beverly Hills Police
On Saturday, May 29th, Austin McBroom took to the streets of Beverly Hills for what he called a “YouTube Take Over Parade,” in relevance to his up-coming fight on June 5th with TikTok star Bryce Hall, in which he encouraged fans, press and others to meet-up on the 400 block of the world famous Rodeo Drive.
On May 28th, McBroom posted a flyer on Snapchat asking his fans and supporters to come to Beverly Hills, and to “be ready to take over the streets,” and that they did.
On May 29th at 4:00 p.m. PST, crowds formed around the 300 block of rodeo drive, in front of the Gucci store, with almost 300 people in attendance.
As crowds grew bigger and McBroom showed up, Beverly Hills PD shut down the 300 block of Rodeo, causing a stop in traffic. The crowd quickly moved to an alleyway off of Brighton street where Mcboom could be seen hitting a pinata.
As the crowd grew in size, BPD moved the riot to Santa Monica BLVD, repeatedly asking the crowd to “disperse”. At around 5:00 pm BPD declared the gathering an “unlawful assembly,” and forced the crowd to evacuate Rodeo completely, and shut down Rodeo completely.
McBroom at around 5:20 pm realized that the crowd was getting too rowdy. A Passerby in a vehicle motioned for McBroom to enter their vehicle so he could get away just outside of 400 N Canon.
