Bonnaroo is a four-day music festival in Manchester, Tennessee, that is held every
June. Every year, tens of thousands of people from all over the U.S. attend
the huge event; however, hundreds of arrest are also made in connection
with the festival each year.
The following are the common types of offenses associated with Bonnaroo arrests:
In the past, Bonnaroo arrests were treated much differently compared to
other arrests in the county during the rest of the year. An offender charged
with a crime at Bonnaroo was sent a letter from the District Attorney’s
office, instructing them to pay a contribution to the Coffee County Drug
Fund (or other government entity) in order to receive a case dismissal.
Yet, in 2015, Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcutt stopped this
policy of allowing festival goers to pay inflated fines and avoid appearing
in court on minor citations. Now, people who receive citations at Bonnaroo
will be expected to make court appearances, hire lawyers, and deal with
the consequences of the criminal offenses they have been charged with.
