Pittsburgh police are reporting that a number of citations and arrests were made following the Saturday evening concert by Luke Bryan at Heinz Field.

Spokeswoman Sonya Toler said there were 15 fights; 154 911 calls for police services; 100 calls for medical services, including 34 transports to a hospital; and a number of arrests and citations.

In fact, 37 nontraffic citations were issued: 20 for ticket scalping, one for public intoxication, six for disorderly conduct, and 10 for public urination.

Also, seven arrests were made: one on an outstanding warrant; two for assault; three for public intoxication/defiant trespass; and one of disorderly conduct.

There were several other arrests (domestics and prostitution) in the area of the North Shore but it is unknown if they are directly related to concert activities.

A police spokeswoman said most of the addresses listed for those arrested are from outside the city of Pittsburgh; including Kittanning, Harrison City and Scottsdale, as well as West Virginia, Texas and several from Ohio.
