Pittsburgh police arrested or cited 73 people and paramedics treated 150 in and around Heinz Field at the Kenny Chesney country music concert that took over much of the North Shore this weekend, police said Sunday.

Chesney's annual stop in Pittsburgh on his concert tour draws tens of thousands of people to the North Shore who turn the riverfront and parking lots into huge parties.

Off-duty officers working inside the stadium on Saturday issued 43 citations for scalping, public urination, disorderly conduct and underage drinking. They also arrested six people on charges ranging from assault to possession of marijuana. In the North Shore lots, police arrested 24 people, including one for robbery. Police said they responded to 10 large fights. City police spokeswoman Diane Richard said paramedics took 45 people to medical facilities.
