EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Police say more than 40 people were arrested at two Guns N’ Roses concerts in New Jersey over the weekend on a variety of charges including assaulting police and selling items without a permit.

Police tell The Record newspaper (http://bit.ly/2at9fpL ) on Tuesday that state troopers arrested 29 people on Saturday, including a woman accused of assaulting two officers, and 18 more on Sunday. The shows took place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

Twenty-two of those arrested were charged with disorderly conduct.

There were also arrests for trespassing, resisting arrest, simple assault, harassment, lewdness, making terroristic threats and marijuana possession.

Investigators say 30-year-old Kimberly Goodman was charged with aggravated assault against two troopers, who received minor injuries.

It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
