The party is over at Torch Lake. According to Mlive, a sandbar promoter who takes part in the big July 4th bash at the lake has been banned from hosting parties for the next five years. A consent judgment signed by a judge says that Beatbox Beverages is prohibited from promoting, sponsoring or organizing a sandbar party on Torch Lake. They're not the only people banned, Brooks Ehlert a.k.a. "DJ Fade" and LansingParty.com have also been banned from Torch Lake.

The Torch Lake Protection Alliance recently filed a lawsuit to stop the parties, saying promoters create a nuisance. As you can see in the YouTube video below, the annual 4th of July party attracts thousands of people to Torch Lake. Last year, according to Mlive, more than 180 arrests and citations were reported.
