Beyond the Sun
Day one of the Electric Daisy Carnival is behind us and it seems to have been a success.
Despite fears that the event may turn deadly — as it has in Dallas and Los Angeles — Metro Police statistics released this morning show that among Friday’s 75,000 partiers, there were no reported fatalities and only a dozen drug arrests. Medics treated more than 300 people and took a few to area hospitals.
Here’s the full list of citations:
• 6 misdemeanor arrests
• 14 felony arrests, 12 of which were drug-related
• 1 DUI alcohol arrest
• 1 traffic accident
• 142 medical calls per the MedicWest Ambulance Service
• 300 people treated by medics
• 5 people transported to area hospitals
• 31 ejections from the event
With general admission tickets sold out for tonight, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is sure to be packed with people and possibly some trouble. Check back with us for more updates on the carnival.
