A crowd of maybe two dozen concert-goers surrounded the police car, forcing them to release the arrested individual. The arresting officer and her backup was unable to start her patrol car and hastily abandoned it as the crowd swelled to 200 strong. Rioters smashed in the cruiser's windows, graffitied the car and looted its contents, which included a laptop and radar gun before flipping the car over. Officers in riot gear later arrived on the scene and were greeted with a hail of bottles and rocks. More police cars were damaged but less seriously than the first. Police made no arrests, but said that they hope to find DNA on the destroyed cruiser that will lead them to suspects.
