SACRAMENTO, CA – A concert-goer who assaulted a guard at Sunday’s concert at Discovery Park was punched by one of the guards, after being handcuffed and led away.

The concert was hosted by radio KSFM 102.5 and included the bands Sage The Gemini, Big Sean, Tinashe, @IAMSU, B.o.B and G-Eazy.

The fight broke out during B.o.B.’s set.

State Assemblyman Jim Cooper, a former captain with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, who once lead the security team at Arco Arena, told KCRA3 that, “Once the handcuffs go on, and they’re in custody, the fighting stops, whether it’s law enforcement or security officers.”

Daryl Liner, the owner of the security company, posted on his Facebook page, that 20,000 fans were in attendance with 104 guards and 50 police officers. In addition there were four horse and gang units present. Cameras with facial recognition were deployed at the venue, as well as a helicopter equipment with a facial recognition camera. Liner’s most notable incident at the concert was one man attempting to steal an ATM machine. The scuffle with the concert-goer was not mentioned.
