ST. CLOUD, Fla. - It’s been called the most notorious party house in central Florida and residents and officials in Osceola County are fighting to shut it down.
Channel 9 anchor Jamie Holmes found out the party won’t end without a fight.
The so-called “Sausage Castle” is a place where guests can shoot guns while riding airboats, blast cannons and have lots of sex.
It’s the creation of Mike Busey, a social media sensation who carved out five acres of St. Cloud swampland and turned it into a party house.
“It’s more than a house. It’s a way of life,” said Busey.
Deputies have been to the home dozens of times in the last six years for noise complaints.
Busey has been arrested for charging for alcohol.
In that time, he’s never been stopped, until now.
“The county is not forcing moral issues. We’re enforcing it from a law enforcement and public safety issue,” said Osceola County Commissioner Fred Hawkins.
The county is going after Busey for code violations.
He’s racked up $1 million in fines for several violations and hasn’t paid up.
The county has begun the foreclosure process.
Leaders plan to have the home bulldozed and sell the property, which should go for about a quarter of what Busey owes.
“We don’t know if we’ll get that money back or not,” said Hawkins.
“So this guy’s sex parties are costing taxpayers money in Osceola County?” asked Holmes.
“Every time he has one,” said Hawkins.
Busey said the home is a place for consenting adults to do what they want and he’s ready to fight for his right to party.
He met with the county and was told by officials that there’s nothing he can do to save his house.
Busey has started to rally his thousands of followers on social media to help save the property.
