As the 3000-capacity crowd exited the venue, police made 12 arrests, after patrolling the parking lots in an effort to root out underage drinking.

The Post-Star reports that four people were charged with underage drinking, five with having an open container in public, one for public urination, and one for drunken driving.

One concert attendee who refused to leave the Civic Center parking lot was subdued with a Taser gun after he fought police officers who were trying to arrest him for disorderly conduct. He was also charged with a misdemeanor for resisting arrest.
