QUEENS, NEW YORK: Deputies from the New York Sheriff's office called a halt on a party at a sex club in Astoria, a neighborhood in Queens, shortly after midnight on Sunday, November 22. Caligula calls itself the "hottest swingers club" in New York City. The neighborhood where it's located entered "yellow zone" restrictions on November 19, as part of Governor Andrew Cuomo's strategy to bring down the coronavirus infection rates in the state. Indoor and outdoor gatherings in these zones are capped at a maximum of 25 people and a maximum of four people can dine together at restaurants. However, Caligula violated all these norms as a large gathering of people were present at the property, according to a report in The Sun.  

The sheriff's office deputies arrived at the location in response to a 311 complaint and the manager of the club Roy Bacoy, 37, was charged with violating an executive order, violating an emergency measure, operating an unlicenced bottle club, and unlawfully warehousing alcohol. He was forced to pay a $1,000 fine for failing to protect health and safety while the business was handed a $15,000 fine, according to Sheriff Joseph Fucito, stated a NY Post report. 

The Sheriff’s Office busted the club around 2 am after waiting for a while for the party to get into full swing. Upon raiding the property, they found over 120 people dancing, smoking hookah and drinking without masks or social distancing. The sheriff's deputies also found three couples having sex in a small room while others were gathered across the venue unlawfully drinking and socializing. Signs inside advertised the location as a place where “wild ones cum to play,” with rooms for sex available to rent. Photos taken by deputies show four white beds and a black leather couch crammed together in a small room with a basket of what appears to be condoms on one of the beds and a trash can on the floor. Another photo shows a large cardboard box filled with condoms with a lacy black bra draped on top of it. There is also a picture of a white laminated sign showing prices for an apparent VIP room, which started at $30 for 10 minutes and went up to $500 for “ALL NIGHT!” according to a NY Daily News report.

Along with the manager, the sheriff's deputies also charged one of the patrons present at this illegal party, Jennifer Hayes, 47, of Lynbrook, with disorderly conduct and violating an emergency measure. “[The chief] kept saying how long have you been working there… I didn’t work there. I heard them laughing and making fun of everybody,” Hayes told The Post Sunday. “I got angry, I mouthed off… they kept me there for four hours,” she continued. Hayes maintained that she wasn't present at the club to indulge in hook-ups and she would be contesting the violation charges leveled against her.  “I just wanted to dance and see and hear a DJ play music, that was it! There’s no other options. You can’t go anywhere.” Hayes also said that she was wearing a mask at all times and that she didn't see anyone having sex at the club and there was certainly no orgy happening.
