Steve Lyttle of The Charlotte Observer reports that off-duty law enforcement officers suffered minor injuries Tuesday night (August 28) while making an arrest during an Ozzfest 2007 concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in north Charlotte.
Overall, however, the sold-out concert took place without the amount of trouble that was experienced at a tour stop earlier this month.
According to police, several off-duty officers working in security at the concert were assaulted by a concert-goer and used force to take him into custody. An unspecified number of the officers suffered minor injuries while making the arrest, police say. The suspect was not hurt.
Tuesday's fracas was a far cry from what happened Aug. 16, during the Ozzfest event at the PNC Bank Art Center in Holmdel, N.J. According to published reports, two people died and 83 arrested at that concert.
Ozzfest has one remaining tour stop — Thursday night in West Palm Beach, Fla.
