The 16th Annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival ended late Sunday night and Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves says his department wrote 295 citations during Bonnaroo 2017. The number is up somewhat from 2016 when deputies wrote 277 citations. Graves added that the citation number is about normal for the festival.

Manchester Police Chief Mark Yother says his department wrote over 75 citations, increasing from the around 50 written at last year's festival.
Tennessee Highway Patrol numbers are always released at a later date.

Overall there were 42 Bonnaroo related arrests by all law enforcement combined, which was up slightly from 37 in 2016.

Most of the arrests and citations were drug and alcohol related.

Bonnaroo organizers told WMSR News that they appreciate the working relationship they have with area law enforcement and they share the goal to have as safe a festival as possible.
