ATTORNEYS HANDLING "ROCK CONCERT" ARRESTS AND CITATIONS
Unfortunately, for many of those who travel to the Hershey and Harrisburg area each year for the Summer Concert Series, there is an unintended consequence to the fun. The Derry Township and Pa State Police step up drug and alcohol enforcement. Each summer, there are numerous arrests at or around the Hershey Stadium, Giant Center, Star Pavilion and City Island. Folks who come in from out of town may see themselves as the target of local enforcement efforts. If you are traveling from home in Jersey, Philadelphia, Reading, York, Lancaster, or Cumberland County to a concert in Harrisburg or Hershey, be warned, they are on the lookout!
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND YOURSELF THE TARGET OF AN ARREST
We receive many calls each year from prospective clients that are charged with one of more of the following:
●Possession of a narcotic, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamines, or prescription medications, such as percocet or oxycontin;
●Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, such as baggies, pipes and rolling papers;
●Distribution, selling or possession with the intent to distribute an illegal drug;
●Consumption or transportation of alcohol;
●Furnishing alcohol to minors;
●Corruption of Minors;
It is important to remain polite and cooperative. Be respectful to the police. Do not volunteer information that is not requested. Chances are if they had enough suspicion to approach you for possible illegal conduct, they have or will have probable cause to arrest or cite you for a violation.
