Some People Went Too Hard At OzzFest Meets Knotfest…

The joint OzzFest Meets Knotfest festival took place this weekend and per the local authorities, some attendees may have partied a little too hard.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reports that 30 people were arrested at the festival with most of the arrests being “alcohol related.”  Ten attendees were hospitalized “for various medical reasons.”

Considering about 37,000 people went to OzzFest Meets Knotfest, those numbers aren’t so bad, but a word of advice to all festival goers:  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.  Nurse your booze a little better or your ass may end up in jail or the hospital.
