There has been a sorted history of criminal offenses at summer concerts hosted at the PNC Bank Arts Center (“PNC”). Historically, the nature of the charges have involved CDS possession and disorderly persons offenses like underage alcohol possession and disorderly conduct. The New Jersey State Police and Holmdel Police have cracked down on these activities but this has not eliminated violations of this nature. In fact, the concert season last year actually brought with it a shooting. There is little doubt to our attorneys that this event is going to result in even more intense police presence during the upcoming season.
There are some concerts at PNC that are more conducive to criminal charges than others. This is largely a function of the age of the patrons as teenagers and young adults are more prone to misbehave than adults visiting the venue. The events which the lawyers at Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver believe to be the most problematic in this regard are:
- July 2, 2016: Weezer and Panic!
- July 8, 2016: Sublime with Rome Summer Tour 2016
- July 9, 2016: Slipknot and Marilyn Manson
- July 21, 2016: G-Easy & Logic
- Merry Jane Presents Snoop Dog & Wiz Khalifa
As more and more individuals are arrested for a criminal offense at PNC, the leniency of the judge in Holmdel to become less and less. Hardening on prosecution and plea bargaining has also steadily escalated since several well publicized overdoses. Now we have the discharge of a weapon at the facility.
