111 Arrested in Colombia for Rowdiness At Iron Maiden Concert

BOGOTA – Colombian police arrested a total of 111 people on the weekend in this capital after they participated in street disturbances and tried to enter a concert given by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden without tickets, local authorities told the press on Sunday.

According to the official police report, “Thirty-seven men and three women remain under arrest” and they will have to “assume the costs of the stoplights and traffic signs that they damaged without just cause.”

The report said that about 25,000 people attended the Saturday evening concert in Simon Bolivar Park, “however, the embarrassing acts perpetrated by a group of malcontents who wanted to enter without tickets” ruined the social scene in the area around the venue.

Amid the disturbances, one policeman was injured in the face, and on Sunday he was recovering from reconstructive surgery, police said.

The officer, identified as Rolado Arturo Girata Mora, serving with an Esmad anti-riot squad, “was attacked by fanatics who caused facial trauma by giving him an open wound in the right cheek,” sources said.

The seriousness of his injuries “required reconstructive surgery,” police said.
