Updated October 26, 2021 - 10:40 pm

Las Vegas police made 34 felony arrests during Electric Daisy Carnival over the weekend, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

Metropolitan Police Department officers also made six DUI arrests and issued 43 misdemeanor citations. It was unclear what each of the arrests and citations was for.

The three-day festival wrapped up Sunday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

People leaving the electronic dance music festival caused significant traffic delays on Monday, causing a backup of about 10 miles near the California border.
