Update 5/28 1:57 p.m.: We are starting to get somewhere. The Pima County Sheriff's Department, which had deputies at the concert, has sent us a copy of the police report associated with the incident. The quick and dirty: A Linkin Park security guard approached an off-duty deputy at around 6:50 p.m. to complain about Sublime smoking marijuana.

"The smoke was irritating one of the band members and he is, indeed, allergic to marijuana smoke. They were requesting for us to talk to the band to tell them to stop smoking the marijuana inside," the report reads.
