Kenny Chesney's Wild Wisconsin Concert Sees Nearly 300 Fans Ejected

The Kenny Chesney-Jason Aldean concert in Wisconsin over the weekend got a little too wild and nearly 300 fans were ejected from the show at Lambeau Field.

The country music concert, which took place at the home of the Green Bay Packers, boasted 53,000 attendees, but the number of arrests trumped that of all those made during both the Packers’ 2014 and 2015 seasons, according to Fox 11. The Chesney event saw 25 arrests and between 250 and 300 ejections, whereas there were an average of 6.2 arrests and 23 ejections and 8 arrests and 27 ejections over the course of the NFL team's 2014 and 2015 seasons.

“I don't recall, in my 27 years, ever having a game where we were this busy,” Green Bay Capt. Paul Ebel, who was in charge of the police operations at the concert, told The Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The highest-ever number of ejections at a Packers game since 2002 is 91, according to The Associated Press. Chesney’s last concert at the venue in 2011 saw 15 people arrested and 60 people ejected.

Most of the concert ejections were attributed to fighting, harassment, or extreme intoxication, the AP noted. Eighty-nine officers were stationed at the concert, which is about the same number that staffs the Packers games. Lt. Chad Ramos with the Green Bay Police Department said that they could have used 50 or 60 more officers on duty that night, however.

“This is another incident of over indulgence of alcohol, period. When people drink for long periods of time, and engage in a party atmosphere, there’s going to be some unintended consequences,” Ramos said, according to Fox 11.

But the Green Bay police consider the concert a success, nevertheless.

“I think we did pretty well," Ebel told The Press-Gazette. “At the end of the night, everybody went home, and nobody was seriously hurt.”
