43 Arrested in Fake ID Sting at SPAC Snoop Dogg/Wiz Khalifa Show
Forty three arrests were made at Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa's Sunday night show at SPAC as part of the New York State DMV's "Operation Prevent" sweep for fraudulent IDs.
In addition to those arrests, which yielded fake IDs from New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine and more, 24 fraudulent documents were also found inside the venue, according to a press release put out by the DMV Tuesday.
Snoop and Wiz performed at SPAC Sunday as part of their High Road Tour. At the show, according to the release, state investigators checked documents in places where concertgoers were attempting to purchase alcohol.
"Operation Prevent" investigations are funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee as a means of keeping the roads clear of drunk drivers and discouraging underage drinking. The sweeps are typically conducted at bars and local businesses, but sweeps were set up this past weekend at SPAC and on Thursday, August 4 at a Brad Paisley concert at the Nikon Jones Beach Theater, where 22 people were arrested and charged with trying to buy alcohol with fraudulent identification.
