At Least 90 People Hospitalized During Chance The Rapper Show! A Chance The Rapper show held on Friday (July 21) in Hartford, Connecticut ended with at least 90 people hospitalized for “severe intoxication,” according to the Hartford Courant.
Hartford Deputy Chief Brian Foley said officers also cited 50 concert attendees for underage drinking at a Hot 93.7 Hot Jam concert, which also featured performances from PnB Rock,Kyle and ANoyd.
In two separate videos Deputy Foley posted to Twitter, it’s clear the crowd was in a celebratory mood, but evidently things got out of control. Foley said people were tailgating, partying and excessive alcohol consumption was “extremely prevalent.”
Police made several arrests and ambulances were called in to rush dozens of concertgoers to various local hospitals to receive emergency medical treatment.
