Like any gathering of the unruly, this past weekend’s Big 4 or Big Four — depending on what you prefer (I, the latter) — led to a ton of arrests by local police. None were charged with unlawful carnal knowledge or butt sex, as far as we know.
According to local media, more than 20 people were sent to the pokey during the sexy concert at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California, that featured Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax and drew an estimated 50,000 long-hairs and girls with no rhythm.
Indio Police spokesman Ben Guitron told reporters that a total of 21 people were arrested between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m. — the time the concert was winding down.
Most were alcohol-related, “drunk and disorderly” behavior, according to Guitron. A few drug arrests were made as well, he said.
You knew the drug arrests were going to happen, and a lot of overexcited people sauced up in the sun. You see at least one of those assholes at every summer show. Beer plus the sun equals you on a stretcher, thus missing the Big Four. But I digress.
No harm in a few arrests. I’m just glad no one was stabbed or shot. Or raped.
