Officers arrested 20 minors for possessing alcohol during a rock concert in Chula Vista, the second such crackdown in a week.
The arrests were made during the Saturday night stop of Lana Del Rey’s 2015 Endless Summer tour, featuring Courtney Love, at the Sleep Train Amphitheater, 2050 Entertainment Circle, according to a report from the Chula Vista Police Department.
