People Behaving Badly: Country Jam by the Numbers
For the vast majority of those who attend, Country Jam is a music festival. For others, it's an opportunity to prove to everyone how badly they can behave.
Thursday was a relatively quiet night at the Jam. Friday was an entirely different story. For one, a man accidentally shot himself in the campground, ignoring the no weapons at Country Jam rule. I do hope he recovers fully and as quickly as possible.
Take a look at the numbers and names of people behaving badly at Country Jam. These are from Friday, June 15. Saturday and Sunday numbers will be reported as they become available.
