The Increasing Tides of Arrests in Asheville: Higher Frequency & Penalty for Large Venue Crimes

In recent months, Asheville has seen an increase in arrests, citations, and charge severity at larger event venues - including the US Cellular Center and the Orange Peel. Scores of felony charges seem to be the new normal following shows at these venues.

While Asheville is a great place to experience live music, it’s not a great place to try and bend the law.

In this article, we address the potential reasons behind the increase in arrests, and provide advice on what to do if you do run afoul of the law at the Orange Peel or US Cellular Center and end up facing charges.

What to do if you are stopped for DWI

Getting pulled over can be frightening and stressful - especially if you are suspected of driving while under the influence. If you are pulled over for a DWI in Asheville, remember this information- it could save you loads of trauma and financial burden in the future.

First things first: please do not drink and drive. It is dangerous, deadly, and unnecessary. Always have a designated driver, or hire a taxi.
