Are your chances of surviving a mosh pit at a rock concert better than attending a live country music show or festival? Lately, the answer is yes, and if you’re a fan who attends one of these events, you’re left asking yourself, what the hell is going on with country music fans these days?
Concertgoers were out of control Friday night, the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office reported, as several fans were arrested at the Florida Georgia Line concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center. The rap sheet for the event included third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, and resisting arrest among other things. Several fans were even charged with trespassing after being ejected from the venue and caught trying to re-enter the facility.
