According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, six people were arrested during the first day of Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on November 4 in Devore, California.
Five people were arrested for public intoxication and one on an assault charge during the Ozzfest concert at Glen Helen Amphitheater. In addition, two people were transported to local hospitals for additional medical treatment due to their medical condition, Lt. Doug Wolfe said in a press release.
Over 17,000 concert-goers were in attendance for the all-day event, which was headlined by OZZY OSBOURNE, while ROB ZOMBIE closed out Sunday's Knotfest bill.
This was the second year Ozzy's Ozzfest has merged with SLIPKNOT's Knotfest for a two-day heavy metal juggernaut.
Last year's Ozzfest Meets Knotfest show saw thirty people arrested during the first day and seventeen people during the second day. As was the case this year, most of the arrests were alcohol-related.
Ozzfest started more than 20 years ago and was the first national music festival of its kind dedicated to hard rock music.
Ozzfest has not been a traveling festival in the U.S. since 2007's "free" edition. The show morphed into a one-off event in Dallas in 2008, took 2009 off and played just six cities in 2010.
