Excise officers are continuing to work to curb underage drinking and smoking at summer concerts. Police arrested 43 people during the Vans Warped Tour Concert Wednesday.

Ten people were arrested for possession of marijuana, including four minors. Thirty-one minors, some as young as 14, were cited for possession of tobacco. Three adults are now charged with furnishing tobacco to a juvenile. One person was also arrested for false informing.

“The Indiana State Excise Police will be a present at Klipsch Music Center throughout its scheduled events,” Superintendent Matt Strittmatter said. “We will continue to promote a safe environment for those attending the music venue through the enforcement of Indiana laws.”

In concerts earlier this season, excise officers arrested 24 people at Rascal Flatts, 68 at Kenny Chesney, 30 people at Zac Brown Band, 54 at Brad Paisley, 64 at May Day and 52 at Tim McGraw.
