Nearly 100 People Arrested Outside of Brad Paisley Concert in California

Almost 100 people were arrested or issued citations by police outside the venue where Brad Paisley played just a short time later.

On June 6, a crowd of fans were tailgating outside of the Sleep Train Amphitheater in Chula Vista, CA before that night’s performance of Paisley’s Crushin’ It World Tour. According to NBC 7 San Diego, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control joined the Chula Vista police force to do a sweep through the tailgating area.

Most of those who were arrested or cited were individuals ranging from 17 to 20 years old and accused of alcohol violations. Four adults were also arrested for giving alcohol to minors, and two other minors were arrested for having fake IDs.

All minors who were cited at the concert will face a minimum of a $250 fine and 24 hours of community service. Any adults that were arrested or given citations will face a minimum fine of $1,000 and must also complete 24 hours of community service.

Paisley’s show went on later that evening without any further incident. Paisley is currently in the middle of his Crushin’ It World Tour, which will continue through October 3. You can find a full list of upcoming tour dates posted on his official website.
