There was a record breaking crowd at Heinz Field for the Pitt vs. Penn State game yesterday, but the huge event resulted in several arrests and citations.

State police told WTAE they issued 34 citations for underage drinking and two for fake ID’s in the Heinz Field parking lots.

Police found that six out of eleven vendors investigated in Heinz Field, sold alcohol to people under 21 years of age.

Authorities also issued twenty-one ticket scalping citations, according to WTAE.

129 medical calls to Emergency Medical Services were made. Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman Emily Schaffer told WPXI that most calls were heat-related, but there were a few alcohol related, and a few for falls. 31 people were transported to local hospitals, but no one was seriously hurt or injured.

One of the three arrests occurred outside the stadium for disorderly conduct and defiant trespass. The other arrests were made at the gates of Heinz Field. One for a domestic incident and the other for assault.
