Drunks at concerts I have a ton of them. In early 2000 I was a concert security worker/ supervisor for almost two years before I was injusred at a show and retired
in the 2 years I did over 75 shows from small venues to larg Oz fests... national stages etc. I did from the Monkey's, Slayer to skinhead bands. I had done this kind of work on and off for a few years in my younger days as well.
There are allot of stories where we had to have the ambulance take people out since nobody knew who the person was or would say they knew them if they did. We found them face down in parking lots, bathroom stalls everywhere and they were out cold and on what..who knew? .
There was no way we could find out what they were on or really help them so away they go with the squad.
One that stands out was in Toledo Ohio about 2000 I think Kid Rock was just getting big and was playing a hockey arena there it held like 6-7 thousand people, Fuel and Buckcherry I think were the openers. There was a guy in the crowd in a wheelchair (not a first) who was very drunk and pretty insistent he get to the front of the baracade so he could see. Most people in chair sit up in the seat area or there are areas for them but he wanted to be on the floor where of course he will be looking at butts all night not the stage.
The problem was he was drunk and pushing his chair forward causing it to dig into peoples legs as he continued to try to push forward. A few times some other drunk would help push him and make the matter worse.
After we got a few complaints I entered the crowed with a few guys and warned him to stop this now and that we would provide him a place to see the show. He would have no part of it and said he would chill. Some people told us to leave the poor guy alone..little did they know.
He continued to try to move forward and hurting people and I said... ok..enough!
Before we could reach him he was swinging at people and woman said he was grabbing their butts and putting his hand thru their legs touching their..
four of my guys myself included picked up him and the wheelchair and carried him about 75 feet thru the crowd while they were rocking out to Fuel .....not easy to do. As we carried him he was twisting and punching our hands but we had on heavy gloves and never really felt it. The crowd on the floor cheered when we got him finally out and carried down the stage loading ramp , out the door into the night. I hated to do it but...he deserved it.
