Source: Blabbermouth

According to NorthJersey.com, some of the more than 80 people arrested during Thursday's (August 16) Ozzfest 2007 concert at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey were taken into custody for what police perceived as "unruly behavior in the mosh pit." They were charged with assault if they flailed their arms or legs in a way that police felt would hurt others, authorities said.

A total of 83 arrests were made during Thursday's concert, of which 59 were for charges of underage drinking, state police said. Among those arrested were 18 juveniles, including three 15-year-olds and three 16-year-olds.

More than two dozen people were also arrested Thursday on various charges, which included possession and distribution of drugs, disorderly conduct, providing alcohol to a minor and presenting false identification, State Police Sgt. Stephen Jones said.

A total of 18 concertgoers were also transported to Bayshore and Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank on Thursday, according to both facilities.
