GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Police say hundreds of people were ejected from Lambeau Field during a concert featuring country music star Kenny Chesney.
Press-Gazette Media reports between 250 and 300 people were kicked out of Saturday’s concert, far more than the average during Green Bay Packers games this past season. The highest number of ejections at a game since 2002 was 91 during a 2012 playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Green Bay Capt. Paul Ebel, who oversaw concert police operations, says he doesn’t recall ever having a game as busy as Saturday’s event in his 27 years.
Reasons for concertgoers being ejected included fighting, harassment and extreme intoxication. Twenty-five people were arrested at the concert that was attended by roughly 53,000 people.
Fifteen people were arrested and 60 people were ejected during a 2011 Chesney concert at Lambeau Field.
