Over 100 People Sent to The Hospital After Drinking Too Much At Chance The Rapper’s Show
(AllHipHop News) Over 100 people have been hospitalized after drinking too much at Chance the Rapper’s show in Hartford, Connecticut.
The rapper performed at the Xfinity Theater for the Hot 93.7 concert on Friday evening.
According to police, all of the victims were sent to the hospital for severe intoxication and 50 of them were subsequently charged with underage drinking.
"A 'typical' concert is around 20-30 transports. 60 would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night. It depends on the act that is in town and the fan base age,” Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley told The Hartford Courant.
So many people were taken to the hospital during the concert that it overwhelmed emergency responders working during the evening.
Most of those were arrested in the parking lots around the concert, where over 21,000 people showed up to see the rap star.
