More Than 100 Arrested at Kenny Chesney Concert

Police cracked down hard on alcohol offenders at Saturday’s New England Country Music Festival in Foxboro, Mass., in an effort to prevent a tragedy similar to what happened at the event last year. More than 300 people were detained and more than 100 were arrested for public drunkenness, underage drinking or other alcohol-related rowdy behavior at the show, which featured Kenny Chesney, Sugarland and Lady Antebellum.

“The binge drinking is pretty significant,” Foxboro Police Chief Ed O’Leary said. “Since people have started coming to the gates at [5:00 PM], we’ve had a rapid increase in the number of people we’re taking into custody.”

Police were said to have a “zero tolerance” policy at the festival this year. Two women were killed in a car accident after the show last year.
