HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hartford police were on the hunt for underage drinkers at a rap concert at the Xfinity Theatre.
Ten undercover officers and 20 ambulances were working the J.Cole and Big Sean concert in Hartford Saturday night. Eight regional hospitals were alerted to possible alcohol transports.

“I’d have to say this concert rates very high on the underage drinking scale,” Deputy Chief Brian Foley said in a tweet on patrol at the concert.
Earlier this week at a J.Cole concert in New Jersey, underage drinking was not the only problem as two people were flown to area hospitals after a shooting that night.
