SLIPKNOT/SLAYER 'Mayhem' Show At Darien Lake Draws 21 Arrests Or Citations
According to The Batavian, 21 people were arrested or cited during the August 1 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival concert at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, New York. Of the four people arrested, a 49-year-old man and a 27-year-old male were charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly engaging in a fight in the parking lot; a 23-year-old man was charged with trespass after allegedly climbing a light pole inside the concert venue; and a 51-year-old male was charged with DWI and Driving with more than .08 BAC after allegedly driving in the parking lot intoxicated. Seven people were charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and 10 others were issued citations for alleged consumtion/possession of alcohol under age 21.
Regarding the lower number of underage drinking citations, Deputy Chief Gordon Dibble said SLIPKNOT and SLAYER — who are headlining this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival — draw a slightly older crowd than, say, Toby Keith. "We still went out looking for violations, we just didn't find too many," Dibble said.
Dibble didn't have the exact attendance figures, but the the projected attendance (which the Sheriff's Office uses to guage the size of its enforcement and traffic detail) was 6,500.
