Pittsburgh police were busy outside of the Brothers of the Sun Tour concert featuring Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw at Heinz Field Saturday night, with fights and other apparent rowdy behavior.
The sold-out event started at 4:30 p.m., and by the end of the evening, city police had arrested 12 people on charges not specified and issued 40 non-traffic citations for such offenses as fighting, disorderly conduct and intoxication.
In addition, about 50 concert-goers were ejected from the stadium, according to police spokeswoman Diane Richard.
