Country fans know how to have a good time, which sometimes results in getting a little rowdy. However, most fans know how to keep themselves under control, but such was not the case for nine Brantley Gilbert fans on Friday night (July 8).
The Daily News police blotter details the nine arrests, which occurred during Gilbert’s concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in New York.
Three of the nine fans were arrested and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana after they were “allegedly found in possession of a quantity of marijuana.” Two other fans were arrested and charged with third-degree assault, one for allegedly hitting another fan and breaking their nose.
One other fan was arrested and charged with second-degree harassment after they allegedly punched a security officer in the face.
Trespassing was apparently a problem at the concert, since three of the nine arrests made resulted in trespass charges. Two individuals were charged with trespass after they allegedly attempted to come back into the venue after being ejected. Yet another fan was charged with third-degree criminal trespass after they allegedly made their way behind the stage before walking out on the stage itself.
All those arrested at the concert were issued appearance tickets to show up in court on July 19.
Despite the arrests, Gilbert still managed to put on a great show without a hitch. His next tour stop is St. Clairsville, Ohio on July 14.
A staple of Gilbert’s current setlist is his most recent single and chart hit, “Stone Cold Sober.” You can watch Gilbert perform the song live during one of his tour stops in the clip below.
