15 UConn Students Hospitalized After Alcohol Poisoning

Fifteen people were transported to area hospitals from Gampel Pavillion at the University of Connecticut during a Schoolboy Q concert Friday night because of mostly alcohol-related issues and two people were arrested at the concert, according to Stephanie Reitz, a UConn spokesperson. A non-student was arrested on charges of possession of alcohol and trespassing and a UConn student faces a disorderly conduct charge, Reitz added. The people hospitalized are believed to be UConn students because tickets were only available to students. She said they were transported due to intoxication "believed to be alcohol" and that they're waiting for more information from the hospitals.
