Twins Shawn and Dashawn Butler had their Saturday night party all set, according to investigators. They were going to host a huge gathering in northeast Harris County on someone else's private property.

But someone dialed in a tip to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, saying that the Butlers had made use of social media to spread the word that the place to be was an open field in Huffman and hundreds of folks were expected.

From the sheriff's report:

"Due to the fact that they [deputies] expected underage drinking and drug use, among other things, deputies took immediate action to shut down the plans. When deputies arrived at the location Friday afternoon, they found the lock on the gate to the private property had been cut. When contacted, the property owners said they did not give anyone permission to use their land and gave deputies permission to pursue criminal charges. Inside the property deputies located the three organizers. All three, including one juvenile, were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing.

And his twin, Dashawn

Upon their arrest, deputies convinced one of the adult organizers to post a message on his social media webpage alerting would-be attendees that the party had been canceled. That message read in part "The Ranch Party is cancelled! The Harris County Sheriff's Department are 100% aware of this party and will be in full force in the Huffman area..."
The organizers expected attendance of four thousand or more at the event. Thanks to the anonymous tip and the work of the deputies a massive, unlawful, scene was avoided.

You guys really think the ranch owner didn't know about this?? Get your facts straight before you go out and start publishing crap articles like this.

I find it hard to believe they were planning to throw a party that would attract thousands and hadn't secured permission for the venue. More likely this was CYA by the landowner once word got out. Get it in writing or something next time guys.

It’s funny how the media changes up what was really said. We were given permission to use the property and were not promoting, providing, or advertising underage drinking or drugs. What people come & do at a party is all on them. Blame the parents for letting the kids go & blame the kids for making bad decisions. All this can’t be put on us. One more thing the Sheriff's Department DID NOT I repeat DID NOT convince me to post the statues about the party being canceled. I offered & posted it at my own will. The Sheriff’s Department actually denied my request & wanted to make an example of this party and arrest all who attended.  They didn’t prevent the situation they actually considered letting it happen. - Shawn Butler

You ever drive out that way? There are acres and acres of wasted space. It is poetic that these two ambitious young kids wanted people to get wasted in that space. Party on, Shawn and DeShawn. I think their near identical names are bold and brilliant, given that they are IDENTICAL twins.

 @shawnmelo15 The media didn't change anything up. I quoted the sheriff's office as it says in the post.

 

I would be more than glad to talk with you directly about what you believe happened. Please give me a call at 713-280-2470. -- Margaret Downing
