Travis Scott show cancelled, crowd goes wild, smashes stadium doors

TULSA, Okla. – A crowd of angry concertgoers tried to storm Tulsa’s BOK Center after it announced the cancellation of the Travis Scott concert Monday night just hours before it was scheduled to start.

Arena officials said that “technical productions issues” caused the show to be rescheduled to March 26.

The cancellation enraged fans who had already gathered outside the arena. Some members of the crowd threw objects, including a security barrier. Others attempted to rush the front doors of the arena.

Tulsa police said pepper balls and pepper spray was used to help disperse the crowd.

According to reports, the angry mob smashed one of the glass doors at the arena’s entrance.

Scott tweeted an apology at 7:30 p.m. for moving the show. He told fans he didn’t want to give them an “incomplete show.”

BOK Center officials said that all tickets for Monday’s performance would be honored March 26.

Call it the Stadium Security Administration

Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2019

New legislation proposes a brand-new bureaucracy to establish a “uniform security protocol” for public events — such as football games and rock concerts.

HB 1415 by Rep. Brian Evans would establish a committee including university officials, state agencies and others to

develop a standard security protocol for admission procedures for public events, whether ticketed or unticketed, held at arenas, stadiums, auditoriums, and other facilities designed to hold large numbers of people for public events

What might that mean?

The protocol specifications shall include without limitation:

(A) Designation of the types and sizes of items that may  be brought into an event;

(B) Standards for purses, bags, sacks, backpacks, and other implements designed to carry other items; and

(C) Standards and recommendations for secure admissions to public events.

As written, the proposal doesn’t seem to provide for enforcement of these recommendations. This idea perhaps arises from the Salt Bowl panic at War Memorial. Or perhaps it’s just a byproduct of what seems to be, for many people at least, ever more anxious times.

Fan who flashed laser on Tom Brady banned from Arrowhead Stadium, will face charges

Adam Schefter  ESPN Senior Writer, 2/3/19

The fan who shined a laser on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the AFC Championship Game has been identified, apprehended, banned from Arrowhead Stadium for life and soon will face charges from the Kansas City district attorney, league sources told ESPN.

After a Kansas City television station identified a fan shining a laser on Brady, Chiefs officials quickly worked to identify the fan by using videotape and eyewitnesses.

The NFL says it will look into a report that a laser was flashed at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during the fourth quarter Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

“There’s a lot of pride in Kansas City, and we and our fans thought, ‘You don’t do that here,’” one Chiefs official told ESPN.

The Kansas City police department initially wanted to cite the fan with disorderly conduct, but Chiefs officials didn’t feel those charges were strong enough and instead have been pushing for “the harshest penalty possible,” in the words of one source.

The Chiefs want this incident to deter fans from pointing a laser at players at future games, a violation that has more serious ramifications than many realize. Since last month’s conference title game, members of the military have reached out to Brady to inform him that the lasers shined near his face could cause irreversible eye damage, according to another source.

One day after New England’s overtime victory in Kansas City, a league spokesman confirmed that the NFL would look into the incident. A cameraman from Kansas City station KMBC shot video that showed a green dot flickering around Brady’s shoulder and face.

Man wearing security jacket caught trying to sneak into Patriots locker room

The New England Patriots’ locker room was the sight of a Super Bowl LIII celebration Sunday night, and one unwanted guest tried to crash the party.

After the Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, a man posing as a security official tried to sneak into the Patriots locker room but was caught, as evidenced in the Sports Illustrated video below.

It’s now known at this time how the fan got the red security jacket, but luckily for the Patriots, he was caught before entering the locker room.

This isn’t the first time there’s been a security issue following a Super Bowl victory for the Patriots. Tom Brady’s game-worn jerseys from Super Bowl XLIX and Super Bowl LI both were stolen. They were ultimately found thanks to law enforcement.

FBI: Drone pilots caught flying in Super Bowl area face fines, jail time

Feb 2, 2019

ATLANTA – FBI officials say they have confiscated half a dozen unauthorized drones flying around Mercedes-Benz Stadium ahead of Super Bowl 53.

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a temporary flight restriction (TFR) in the areas around the stadium and is warning pilots to stay out of the “no drone zone.”

Officials issued a stern warning message to the public Thursday that pilots caught flying drones in the area face significant fines and/or jail time.

Channel 2′s Aaron Diamant talked to frustrated FBI officials, who said drones take away security resources from other areas that need them.

“It’s taken a lot of time, it’s taken up a lot of time for our agents and for law enforcement officers to be targeting these drones when they could be working on other security measures.” FBI Spokesman Kevin Rowson said.

Not only do agents have to figure out if any of the unauthorized drones are weaponized, officials are also concerned they could crash and hurt someone.

The FBI’s lead Super Bowl planner, John Cronier, said that’s not the only problem.

“A drone impact with a fixed-wing aircraft or a helicopter of any sort would be catastrophic,” Cronier said. “We are making sure that doesn’t happen.”
