NOBLESVILLE — The Indiana State Excise Police says its officers arrested 62 people for marijuana- and alcohol-related charges during a concert at Klipsch Music Center northeast of Indianapolis

Officer Brandon Thomas said Sunday that 11 juveniles, 37 minors, and 14 adults were arrested on 67 charges. He says 22 face preliminary charges of possession of marijuana and that others face preliminary charges of illegal possession of an alcoholic beverage and furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor.

Thomas says all of those arrested were released after being issued summonses to appear in a Hamilton County court.

The arrests occurred Saturday at a concert featuring the bands New Politics, Buckcherry, Awolnation, Bush, and Soundgarden.
