police and korn fans collide in albuquerque
(from a newspaper article)
after a long wait, unruly crowds clash with police, resulting in 42 injuries
what should have been a standard rock show turned ugly when technical problems forced a late start of the korn/rob zombie show at tingley coliseum in albuquerque, new mexico. according to the albuquerque journal, fans started to get rowdy when a truck carrying equipment for korn broke down, forcing an hour delay getting into the venue. many fans, who had been waiting for hours, rushed security check points, shouted at guards and knocked over metal security barriers. all told, over 100 people were ejected from the property, three police officers were injured and 39 fans were treated for injuries, some serious. amazingly, there were no arrests. security for the soldout show was greater than normal, but no one expected the delays that caused most of the problems. once fans were allowed inside the venue, the situation quickly diffused, although rowdy behavior did continue well into the show. at the end of the concert, police swept the main street in front of the venue using horses and german shepherds.
ironically, the mayor of albuquerque, jim baca, was on hand for some of the drama, since his daughter was in attendance at the concert. he heard about the scuffle on a police scanner and drove to the fairgrounds to investigate. baca publicly criticized event organizers for not having adequate security and for serving alcohol at a show with many in attendance under 21. in an effort to voice his concern, baca called the governor of new mexico, gary johnson, who was all ears since his son was also at the show.
tom tinnin, the state fair commission chairman, in charge of the venue, later claimed that the situation was under control. ''we probably need to look and see what the demographics are of these kind of concerts,'' tinnin said. ''and if it's mostly teen-agers, we might consider not serving alcohol.''
