I was in California visiting a friend and I attended a housewarming party. The party got too loud and the cops were asked to come. We ended the party after the second time they came, but they came a third time while a few of us were left cleaning the house. I told them that we weren't being loud and that the neighbor who called was just being difficult. They ended up issuing me a misdemeanor for disturbing of the peace. Is it possible for them to give me a ticket if I wasn't the host/home owner? I answered the door to be responsible. I don't even live in California. I would have to fly back to California to attend the court date. Is this easy to fight in court? I would like to avoid this going on my record, if at all possible, since I've never had a run in with the law before this.
