Arrests, medical calls in low numbers at Electric Daisy Carnival


So far, so good.

No deaths were reported through 6 a.m. Saturday as the first night of the three-night Electric Daisy Carnival came to an end.

Of the reported 75,000 rave attendees, Las Vegas police reported 20 arrests. Six of those arrests were for misdemeanors and 14 were for felonies -- 12 of which involved the use or sale of narcotics. One person was arrested for suspected DUI, and one traffic accident was reported.

Police said MedicWest, a private ambulance service, received 143 calls. About 300 patients were treated, with five being transported to area hospitals. There were 31 people ejected from the event.

The second show will start at 8 p.m. Saturday and end at 6 a.m. Sunday.
