Staff Report

RS-MickAt 8:56 p.m., police received a call from a local pay phone saying that a bomb had been planted near the stage area of Scott Stadium.

Within minutes Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones’ lead singer, was alerted, and the band immediately left the stage area. Additionally, every action was taken to ensure the safety of those in attendance. Once police declared the area safe, the concert resumed.

According to Sgt. Melissa Fielding of the U.Va. Police Department, the bomb threat remains under investigation. “There is nothing new to report,” she said, “other than we’re still working with the FBI, and state, county and Charlottesville police departments to follow up on leads.”

From a police officer’s perspective, Fielding added, the concert was otherwise pretty routine: “We received complaints about traffic and made a few alcohol-related arrests, but nothing out of the ordinary or unusual. Basically, people came, and they had a good time.”
