Luke Bryan‘s sold-out show at Heinz Field this weekend was a party many won’t soon forget. Mainly because the trash will take days to clean-up, the courtrooms will likely be full for a while, and some tailgaters may have some marks and bruises that will take weeks to fade.
Police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said there were 15 fights; 154 9-1-1 calls for police services; 100 calls for medical services, including 34 transports to a hospital; and a number of arrests and citations.
In fact, 37 nontraffic citations were issued: 20 for ticket scalping, one for public intoxication, six for disorderly conduct, and 10 for public urination.
Also, seven arrests were made: one on an outstanding warrant; two for assault; three for public intoxication/defiant trespass; and one of disorderly conduct….
This was Luke’s first stadium show and it made history by setting an all-time record last night for sold tickets. He entertained for more than 50,000 fans and was joined by special guest Dierks Bentley along with “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” openers Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.
