VIDEOS ARE FROM PARTY GOERS WHO ATTENDED THE EVENT VIA YOU TUBE!
LOS ANGELES -- Here we go again. Just like in 2010, this new year is turning out to be a total mess over at the Los Angeles County Memorial Sports Arena due to one of the mega "Rave" concerts that attracted literally thousands last night and earlier today.

Less than eight hours ago, 62 people were treated for "possible" Ecstasy and alcohol overdoses at a rave at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
Dozens more were arrested on suspicion of possessing the psychedelic drug. Sad thing is, that you and I are once again are picking up the tab for the costs to protect and treat these out of control party goers. One man trying to exit the venue took ``a long fall'' on the Figueroa Street side of the arena, firefighters said, adding that he was among those hospitalized early today. It is estimated than more than 26,000 people attended the event. Way over capacity for this old worn out arena.
Firefighter-paramedics and police were especially busy between midnight and 2 a.m. at the 13th annual ``Together As One'' event, billed by promoters as ``the world's largest New Year's Eve dance music festival.''
In the 90 minutes before the event was scheduled to end at 2 a.m., paramedics treated multiple patients -- including two young men and a young woman believed to be in her late teens -- for possible drug overdoses. Glad that we aren't having to plan a bunch of funerals this beautiful New Years morning because of events like this one... WAKE up LA COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS! STOP THESE TAXPAYER SUPPORTED RAVES ONCE AND FOR ALL! STOP PUTTING PERSONAL PROFITS BEFORE THE SAFETY OF OUR RESIDENTS. IS IT TIME TO FOLLOW THE MONEY? I KNOW WHERE THE TRAIL STARTS AND ENDS. ENOUGH in ENOUGH. Click here for an AMAZING look at the MONEY TRAIL from the RAVE promoters. It will SHOCK you. Thanks to LA WEEKLY for this REMARKABLE INSIDE LOOK!
