Esport News – ECS S8 stream was suspended as police investigated suspicious package
The Esports Championship Series Season Eight was on hold as the Santa Monica Police Department investigated a suspicious package near the ECS studio.
The stream was stopped in the middle of the Liquid vs. eUnited series. While the teams continued to play out the series, FACEIT staff left the building in light of the threat.
James Bardolph, CS:GO caster and vice-president of FACEIT, tweeted that the ECS staff had to “evacuate the building”, with the possibility of “a bomb on the promenade” right outside their Santa Monica office.
The SMPD dispatched a bomb squad to the location and had placed the Special Enforcement Bureau of the LASD on standby.
After an hour, the SMPD has confirmed that the package was posed “no threat” to the public. FACEIT has since resumed broadcasting the ECS.
