35 arrested at downtown L.A. Halloween rave
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Around 35 to 40 people were arrested and several others were treated for injuries following a Halloween rave Saturday night at the L.A. Sports Arena.
It was the 13th Annual Halloween Monster Massive, featuring performers like Carl Cox, Moby, Judge Jules and DJ Steve Lawler.
The arrests were made for varying offenses, with most of the charges for narcotic possession. The reported injuries were minor for the most part.
More than 16,000 people, all at least 18 years old, attended the event.
The safety of raves has come into question following the Electric Daisy Carnival in June, when a teenager died of an overdose and 200 people were hospitalized.
"The message is getting out. We want people to come here and have a good time but have a safe time," said Los Angeles Fire Department Batt. Chief Michael Bowman.
Police and first responders were on hand to ensure the safety of rave-goers, including drug sniffing dogs, undercover officers and a doctor.
