Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested or cited 43 people on 46 charges during the Vans Warped Tour concert at Klipsch Music Center Wednesday.

Ten people, including four under 18, for possession of marijuana.

Police say 31 juveniles as young as 14, were cited for possession of tobacco and three adults were charged with furnishing tobacco to a juvenile. One person was also arrested for false informing.

Kurt R. Moore, 23, of Lawrenceville, IL, was jailed on preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance, a felony, and possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor.

One juvenile was taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center for possession of marijuana after officers were unable to get a parent to pick him up from the concert.

In concerts earlier this season, excise officers arrested 24 people at Rascal Flatts, 68 at Kenny Chesney, 30 people at Zac Brown Band, 54 at Brad Paisley, 64 at May Day and 52 at Tim McGraw.

The vast majority of arrests this concert season have been made in the parking lots outside the concert venue. Only a few occur inside the venue itself.
