Bayfest Wraps Up Sunday With Few Incidents

Bayfest Wraps Up Sunday With Few Incidents

Posted: Updated:

It was business as usual downtown for the 19th annual Bayfest Music Festival.

“We’ve had 48 complaints, we’ve made 15 misdemeanor arrests, one felony arrest and just towed a couple of cars,” says Mobile Police Chief Micheal Williams.

Williams says that’s about right for the number of people they’ve seen out here, which is much less on account of the rain. Though some say they’ve seen a little rowdiness.

“T.I. and R. Kelly came on and trying to crowd that many people into that little of an area, it got pretty tight, people running into each other.”

Overall, the crowd seemed well-behaved and happy not to be dealing with the weather.

“We really do appreciate those people who come here simply to have a good time, to enjoy the music and then to go home.”

Now they did have to push a few acts back because of the rain, but for the most part, that was over by 6:00. It looked like everyone was having a good time, a good end to the weekend.
