No doubt about it. Fans of country singer Keither Urban drink a lot of beer.
There was a time when Urban's fans set the record for beer sales at van Andel Arena following one of his concerts back in the mid 200's. Looks like his fans in other cities are doing their best -- or worst -- to keep up.
According to Rolling Stone, 46 people were treated at Urban's concert in Massachusetts. 22 were hospitalized. More than 50 people were taken into custody by police.
"In total, Fire and EMS attended to 46 medicals resulting in 22 transports mostly alcohol-related," Mansfield Police Chief Ron Sellon and Fire Chief Neil Boldrighini said in the statement. "The large number of medicals in a shortened time of approximately three hours caused the activation of a phase one EMS plan utilizing ambulances from five mutual aid communities. Police dealt with a steady stream of intoxicated persons as well, resulting in over 50 people being taken into protective custody and a number of others arrested for alcohol-related issues."
