Widespread Panic in Georgia

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 24, 2007

ARCADE – Southern rock fans trekking to Athens to party with homegrown Widespread Panic prompted at least one police department to spread its net.

But police took just as many locals – if not more – to jail as out-of-town music fans.

Arcade police, with the help of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the state Department of Corrections, set up roadblocks in advance of a three-night Widespread Panic concert stand that started Monday in nearby Athens.

“We’re out here just assuring that we don’t have the same problems that some of the other venues have had,” Arcade police Chief Dennis Bell said.
