HOLMDEL — State Police said there were about 20 arrests made Wednesday at the PNC Bank Arts Center, a night on which alternative rock group Tool performed.

Capt. Al Della Fave, spokesman for the State Police, said that total included arrests for underage drinking and possession of marijuana, but he was not able Thursday to provide a more detailed breakdown of arrests.

That total is less than half the number of arrests made before and during a June 25 concert headlined by The Fray. A June 6 Fall Out Boy show generated similar results by law enforcement. Most of the arrests at both concerts were for underage drinking.

Wednesday's show was the latest in the series of arts center concerts this summer that are expected to draw an under-21 crowd and consequently are slated for extra police presence.

The beefed-up security was part of a plan set by the State Police, the Turnpike Authority, which owns the amphitheater, and Live Nation, which leases it.

The plan to curb underage drinking was put into action in June after 15 concertgoers, 13 of them minors, were brought to Bayshore Community Hospital for alcohol-related illnesses during and after the Gwen Stefani performance May 18.

The next show expected to have extra security is Tuesday. John Mayer is performing.


HALF the arrests of The Fray??
the SAME as Fall Out Boy?

we'll whip the pants off everybody.
