Fashion no-nos and stealing hearts weren’t the only crimes committed at Hangout Fest this year.
There were quite a few arrests made for felonies and misdemeanors.
We don’t want to give it away, but here’s a little table counting the arrests for the venue and surrounding area:
|Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance||109|
|Distribution of Controlled Substance||2|
|Possession of Marijuana 2nd||15|
|Criminal Trespass 2nd||8|
|Attempt to Elude LE Officer||2|
|Possessing Forged Instrument||1|
|Exposure or Lew Act in Public||1|
|Criminal Trespass 3rd||1|
|Obstructing Gov. Operations||1|
Not too bad…
As you can see, we won’t be seeing many folks on the other side because there were fewer arrests than last year — from 133 to 109.
Well, maybe RHCP couldn’t bring it this year.
I mean, those guys are almost seniors. (We kid, they were great!)
Maybe we’re just not so stir-crazy anymore now that the pandemic’s over.
By the way, we’re not encouraging rowdy behavior.
But if we’re not going to let loose at a music festival, where else could we do it?
Aside from the dark necessities like booze and a little weed, we’re just relieved that there was only one hooligan who thought it was a good idea to show people “the goods.”
*Ahem* That’s not the sort of self-expression that we were expecting.
Overall, Hangout Fest was a blast.
The lineup was amazing, and folks are flooding Twitter, spreading the good vibes even after the event.
And even though some people partied a little too hard, they couldn’t ruin the fun for everyone else!
What do you say?
See you next year?
