WickedLocal.com reported that two employees at GILLETTE STADIUM in FOXBOROUGH, MA, were arrested and charged with breaking into a fellow employee's car during the GUNS N' ROSES concert last TUESDAY (JULY 19th).
The men were charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property over $250 and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
Four people were arrested and another 16 were taken into protective custody for intoxication during the concert, which was attended by 42,100 fans.
