Police made 34 arrests at Saturday’s U.S.-Mexico CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer game at the Rose Bowl, including 16 for suspicion of public intoxication.
There were also six arrests for suspicion of illegal vending, five for suspicion of ticket scalping, two each for suspicion of narcotics-related offenses and resisting arrest or interfering with an officer, one each for suspicion of stealing a vehicle, misdemeanor assault and an outstanding warrant, Pasadena Police Department Lt. Art Chute told City News Service.
“I characterize this event as very successful, given we had (93,723) people at the Rose Bowl, the game started at (6:30 p.m.) and there were people tailgating as early as noon,” Chute said.
The game was the first at the Rose Bowl between the U.S. and Mexican teams since June 25, 2011 when there were 26 arrests, primarily for suspicion of public intoxication, and the announced attendance was 93,420.
