The music festival that comes to Miami each year may be in jeopardy after numerous felony and misdemeanor arrests have occurred, as well as the trampling of a security guard when a crowd broke through a fence trying to get inside.
City commissioners, as well as the Mayor of Miami, have called for an end to the three day-long music festival.
An estimated 55,000 people showed up this year for the festival.
According to police, there were 84 arrests made during the festival. While most were misdemeanors, a good number were felony arrests. Most of the felony arrests involved drug possession, including cocaine and MDMA.
The arrests, coupled with the fact that a security guard was trampled, have led the City to consider banning the event the future.
