President David Tandy (D-4) has release the following statement concerning the situation at the conclusion of the concert of the Russ Parr Bus Tour:

“It is unfortunate that this situation has happened but anytime you have such a large crowd leaving a downtown event, there will always be a potential issue regarding crowd control. I understand pushing and shoving lead to some fights breaking out. Louisville Metro Police moved in quickly and got control of the situation. I am glad no one was injured as a result.

As a sponsor of this year’s event, it is time to review all aspects of the program and I look forward to working with Chief White and other organizers to make this a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. It is a shame that a positive event for this community in getting kids ready for school is affected by the actions of a few.”
