BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana University police say none of
its officers used chemical spray on a rowdy crowd at a concert by
rapper DMX.
The crowd reportedly became upset when the charity concert at
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity started late and ended after only a few
songs last night.
Mike Patterson, a contractor who worked security at the show,
says students rushed the stage at one point. And IU police Captain
Jerry Minger says one person was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Minger says at some point someone sprayed a chemical agent into
the crowd. But he says it wasn't any of the IU police, who always
document that type of force.
