Arrests were down this year at Coachella Music and Arts festival in Indio. Over the three day period, there were less than 100 arrests. Festival goers were being more aware and cautious. The down turn in arrests was not due to lack of trying on the part of law enforcement.
A majority of the arrests at Coachella 2013 were for drug or alcohol related offenses. Many of these were public intoxication, fake ID or other misdemeanor charges. Arrests at Coachella for alcohol and drug related crimes are very manageable. Misdemeanor arrests do not require you to step foot in a courtroom. Many of them are negotiable to a diversion program, which result in a dismissal.
