Dad arrested for throwing teen daughter a boozy, Playboy-themed birthday party
Tarnishing the good name of lawyers everywhere, father Jeff Lake of Poway, Calif., threw his 18-year-old daughter Liv a massive, booze-soaked, Playboy-style birthday party on Friday night—an act of wanton debauchery that could land him in jail for up to six months.

Tarnishing the good name of lawyers everywhere, father Jeff Lake of Poway, Calif., threw his 18-year-old daughter Liv a massive, booze-soaked, Playboy-style birthday party on Friday night—an act of wanton debauchery that could land him in jail for up to six months.
Deputies who arrived to break up the revelry said that about 200 teens were in attendance, many wearing lingerie or the trademark bunny ears of Hugh Hefner’s waning porn empire (a brand that we’re shocked anyone born in the 1990s is even tangentially aware of). Two boys, aged 17 and 19, were found unconscious.
Liv’s mother, Jacki Lake—a former PTA president at Poway High School—had previously tweeted a birthday message in keeping with the “cool irresponsible parent” theme.
Jeff Lake, who as an attorney focuses on medical marijuana cases, was arrested for violating a Poway ordinance that criminalizes the hosting of an event where underage kids consume alcohol. According to police, he wasn’t the only adult present, either.
“Huge thanks to everyone who was able to be a part of last night! I hope you all had a damn good time and that you’re all okay and safe,” tweeted Liv in the aftermath, according to an ABC affiliate. We can only hope someone pens a Penthouse letter about the whole thing.
