Multiple arrests at Keith Urban gig

A Keith Urban concert turned into chaos when dozens of people had to be treated for alcohol-related illnesses and multiple arrests were made.

Authorities say several dozen people were treated for alcohol-related illnesses at the concert in Massachusetts.

Police and fire officials say ambulances from five surrounding communities responded to the event on Saturday night (July 26) at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, about 30 miles south of Boston.

At least 46 people were treated and 22 taken to local hospitals.

Police say more than 50 people were taken into protective custody at the concert, and some could face charges.

Officials say about 18,000 country music fans attended the concert at the outside venue.
