RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Dozens of people are facing drug and alcohol charges after complaints at a concert venue in Raleigh.

Local media outlets report that investigators with North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement arrested 65 people at a performance Friday by the band Phish.

The agency says it had received complaints from concert-goers about open drug use and drunken patrons at the Walnut Creek Amphitheater.

Authorities say about half of the people arrested were not from North Carolina, and they face a total of 115 charges, most of which are misdemeanors.
