NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested 68 people on 72 charges during the Kenny Chesney concert at Klipsch Music Center Thursday night.

Officers arrested 61 minors - seven of whom were less than 18 years old, for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol tonight. Six people were charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor. Of the minors cited for underage drinking, three were also charged with false informing and one with possession of false identification. One juvenile was also cited for possession to tobacco.

In concerts earlier this season, excise officers arrested 30 people at Zac Brown Band, 54 at Brad Paisley, 64 at May Day and 52 at Tim McGraw.
