101 Arrested At Country Music Festival At Gillette Stadium

BOSTON (CBS) – It was a busy weekend for police at the New England Country Music Festival at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

One-hundred-one people were arrested Friday and Saturday and nearly 500 more were taken into protective custody.

Charges included disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, assault, and assault and battery on a police officer.

Those arrested range in age from their teens to their 50’s.

Thirty of the teens who were taken into protective custody appeared in Wrentham District Court on Monday. Because they had no criminal past, they were placed into the Norfolk District Attorney Diversion Program so their slates can eventually be wiped clean.

They agreed to perform a day of community service for Foxboro, and will enter into a substance abuse class.

All of the teens were placed on three months probation and will be back in court in November.
