State Police report 65 people were arrested for underage possession or consumption of alcohol at the “Under the Influence” tour which features Jeezy, Tyga and several other rap artists.

In addition, 6 juveniles were arrested for underage possession/consumption of alcohol, 26 arrested for possession of drugs, two juveniles arrested for possession of drugs, two arrested for disorderly conduct, one arrested for possession of a fraudulent driver’s license, and 2 arrested for driving while intoxicated.

A number of extra EMS personnel from the Keyport, Middletown and Holmdel assisted MONOC at the concert venue off the Garden State Parkway in Holmdel as reports of problems were reported to 9-1-1.

Meanwhile, police say two people were hospitalized and 20 were treated for “high level intoxication” after officers responded to a report of a fight on a New Jersey Transit train.

“These were kids who were ‘pre-gaming’ before the concert … a several of them were so incapacitated by the time they got to the train station, that they were literally passing out,” Matawan Police Chief Jason Gallo told 

The Long Branch-bound train stopped at the Aberdeen-Matawan station Sunday night and were going to catch a shuttle bus to the Arts Center.

The spokeswoman for NJ Transit says a “highly intoxicated” 18-year-old female and a man who was injured during the fight were taken to a hospital.
