Ways to Avoid an Arrest at Bonnaroo
If you plan on attending Bonnaroo festival this year, it is vital you remain
aware of the elevated police presence and take certain precautions to
stay safe. There are several ways that you can avoid an unwanted run-in
with the law, including:
Stay attentive: Be on the lookout for law enforcement and any illegal activities that
may be going on around you. If you see something suspicious, keep your
distance. Most importantly, do not ever purchase or hold drugs for or
from someone you do not know.
Drink plenty of water: Bonnaroo is held in the middle of summer and temperatures frequently
reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit and above. Hot temperatures can cause you
to lose water through sweat and hinder your body’s ability to process
alcohol, causing you to become intoxicated more easily. Staying hydrated
can not only protect you against heatstroke, but it could also save you
from an arrest for public intoxication or unruly behavior.
Stay calm: While Bonnaroo is meant to be a fun time, it can get a little rowdy at
times. Keep your composure and stick with people you know. If anyone attempts
to agitate you or start a fight, walk away. Getting into a physical altercation
with another festival-goer can get you thrown out of the festival and
in the back of a squad car on assault charges.
