Almost 50 People Get Alcohol Poisoning At Snoop and Wiz Khalifa’s Show In New York


(AllHipHop News)

More than 50 people were reportedly escorted from a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa gig on Tuesday (August 9) for alcohol poisoning.

Eleven ticketholders, many of them underage, were taken to hospitals near the Nikon Jones Beach Amphitheater in New York on Tuesday to be treated for alcohol poisoning while others under the influence were removed from the show and taken away by their parents, according to reports.

Sources said police officers shut down the bathrooms after three drunk teenagers were escorted from the premises in quick succession.

The underage concertgoers were reportedly drinking alcohol disguised in water bottles in the venue’s toilets and parking lot.

Four people were also arrested for possession of marijuana at the rappers’ The High Road Tour show.

The incident comes just days after 42 people were injured when a railing collapsed at their show in Camden, New Jersey on Friday (August 5).

“The Gin & Juice” rapper took to Twitter to send prayers to his fans and added, “wishn (wishing) u (sic) all a quick recovery. Love,” while Khalifa wrote, “Hope everyone from last night is alright… That s**t was crazy.”
