25 People Taken to Hospitals After Sustaining Intoxication-Related Injuries at a Kenny Chesney Concert
It’s not quite 30 tons of trash, but a sizable mess was made, yet again, at a Kenny Chesney concert.
Officials told the Associated Press that 25 people suffering from being too drunk, injured or both were transported from a Chesney concert in Pittsburgh to local hospitals early Sunday morning.
Several other people were arrested on charges including ticket robbery, simple assault, trespassing and public intoxication, according to police. A few dozen people were cited for underage drinking, and a cop reportedly injured his thumb amidst all the commotion.
Robin Hailey expressed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette a feeling of deep shame over how his fellow concert-goers conducted themselves.
“This is not the Kenny crowd, that’s not what we do,” Hailey said. “No Shoes Nation does not do that.”
