Report: More Than 20 Drug Arrests Made At Hard Rock Festival

Steve Kornacki of is reporting that more than 20 arrests for drug-related charges were made Friday and Saturday at the Livestock 14 concert festival in Zephyrhills, Florida, according to Pasco County Sheriff's Department reports. Two arrests on charges of battery and one arrest on charges of driving under the influence also were made. The concert featured performances by such artists as HATEBREED, SOIL, DROWNING POOL, DAMAGEPLAN and SEVENDUST.

East Pasco Regional Medical Center treated and released 15 patients who were attending Livestock by noon Saturday, according to hospital spokesman Jerry Sterner.

"We had three overdoses among the 15 patients," Sterner said.

Most arrests made involved cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy or nitrous oxide, according to reports.

Nitrous oxide, considered a controlled substance according to deputies, is laughing gas that provides a quick high. One arrest involved a man with four tanks of nitrous oxide in his pop-up camper, and another arrest was made by an undercover deputy purchasing a balloon full of the gas for $5, reports stated.
