Several citations were issued and a number of arrests were made after a concert on the night of June 21st at Heinz Field. A spokesperson for the #Pittsburgh police department said that both during and after the event there were 15 fights reported as well as more than 250 calls to 911 requesting police and medical services, and more than 30 people transported to area hospitals for a variety of injuries. There were also several citations issued for non-traffic related offenses including 20 people cited for scalping tickets to the event, one person cited for public intoxication, 10 people cited for public urination, and six people issued disorderly conduct citations.
In addition to the citations there were a number of arrests made. One arrest was made for disorderly conduct, one on an outstanding warrant, two arrests for assault, and three for defiant trespass. There were other arrests made in the area including several for domestic issues and prostitution but it was not made known whether they were connected to the activities associated with the concert event.
Many people may not know this but certain citations and arrests for seemingly minimal crimes and infractions, such as public intoxication, can have long term effects on your ability to get a job or even qualify for special programs. If you have been arrested or cited for an otherwise minor infraction, it may be to your benefit to fight it instead of simply paying it or pleading guilty. Give my office a call now to discuss.
