Foley told the media there was a lot of drinking in parking lots at the Friday night event and posted videos on social media that showed youths milling around outdoors with drinks in hand.

There were about 21,000 people at the concert, local media reports said.

The Hartford Courant cited Foley as saying that those charged with underage drinking are scheduled to appear in Community Court in Hartford next week.
