Twenty-five Kenny Chesney concert goers were taken to local hospitals and several others were arrested in and around the country music star’s concert in Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday evening. Most of the incidents were a result of people being intoxicated.
Police reported a handful of arrests on charges including trespassing, ticket robbery, assault and public intoxication. Several dozen people were also cited for underage drinking. Fights were many, and one police officer was injured while breaking up a fight.
A 2013 concert by the country artist in the city drew national headlines after 73 people were arrested and patrons left behind more than 30 tons of trash.
