65 People Arrested At UNH Concert

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A University of New Hampshire spokeswoman says scores of people were arrested following a concert at the Whittemore Center on the Durham campus.

UNH media relations director Erika Mantz says 39 people arrested by Durham and UNH police were directly related to the Friday night concert. Of the 39, she said 22 were UNH students. Most of the arrests were for underage drinking and unlawful possession of alcohol. An additional 26 arrests were made by state police and liquor enforcement agents on surrounding roads and parking lots.

Mantz said that more than 4,000 people attended the concert by renowned disc jockey Tiesto.

She said arrests were contained to the concert and areas around it. There were no incidents of vandalism or other crimes related to the concert.
