The organizer of a massive rave where police say six people suffered a drug overdose and one sexual assault occurred, says it was “apparently worth it.”

According to FOX 17 West Michigan, James Taylor, 20, says he successfully threw the largest rave in the county. But authorities are not pleased.   They say more than 2,000 people showed up and many of them were under aged.

But Taylor says that’s not his responsibility.  He told FOX 17 that he’s glad the police and ambulances showed up and that he didn’t make anyone come.

“I didn’t make anyone stay here until 7 a.m. or 11 a.m. or whenever it is that everyone finally left. I didn’t make this kid pass out on my floor. People wanted to be here. That was their decision.”
