The 13th Halloween Monster Massive Music Festival held in Las Angeles Ports Arena Exposition Park was last night. The rave ended with over 40 arrests, 37 injuries and 16 taken to the hospital. With nearly 16,000 in attendance, the police and security were ready.
A group of about 150 people created quite a problem when they attempted to climb the fencing to attend the concert without tickets. The concert well promoted, being called the "Haunting World Beyond Your Imagination", was entertained my those such asand DJ .
The entrance of the rave was trying to send a message, that was not heard very well. With beefed up security, police, fire department, drug-sniffing dogs and undercover officers, there were still 40 arrests, mostly for narcotics and trespassing.
The medical staff also had their hands full with 37 illnesses, reported as drug-related and 16 were taken to the hospital. The condition of those taken to the hospital have not been released.
In the past, the arena has been passing on concerts due to the problems. However, the Halloween Rave was okayed as just the third one this year, after agreeing to upgrading the security measures.
