80 arrests, 16 medical calls at rave

A rave at the Los Angeles Sports Arena resulted in 80 arrests and 16 medical calls, according to city police and fire officials.

The Love Festival, organized by West Hills-based Go Ventures, featured DJs on two stages from 4 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday.

Fire officials said three people were taken to area hospitals by private ambulance. Police said most of the arrests involved drugs and the use of fake IDs.

In July, after a 15-year-old girl died from an apparent drug overdose at the Electric Daisy Carnival, the panel overseeing the L.A. Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena decided to allow Saturday's scheduled rave, but with additional restrictions including banning minors.
