Keith Urban Concert Leaves 22 Hospitalized, One Allegedly Raped, 50 Taken Into Custody


The chaos continues to unfold from this past Saturday's Keith Urban concert, where 22 people were hospitalized and 50 were taken into police custody for mostly alcohol-related problems. Now, a new story is developing in which a 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an 18-year-old male while onlookers stood around taking pictures and videos.

According to police reports, Sean Murphy was hanging out with the girl when they began kissing and moved over to an area on the lawn. He then began having sex with her as about 15 people gathered around them. The incident reportedly lasted no longer than a minute before Murphy walked away, leaving the teen alone and naked from the waist down.

Many witnesses claim they believed the act to be consensual. Once Murphy fled, one woman asked the girl, "Do you want this?" to which the girl replied "no." After this police were summoned, venue exits sealed and Murphy was located and arrested. 

Murphy admitted to being drunk on Jack Daniels and beer, and one witness overheard him phoning his parents, saying "I messed up."

Murphy's lawyer issued the following statement:

"Put simply, this was a consensual act, not a sexual assault. There are no allegations of force or violence against him. This was a private act that regrettably occurred in a public place. My. Murphy deeply regrets this incident and I am sure the young woman does as well. The young woman was neither intoxicated nor overcome by drugs at the time. My. Murphy has no criminal history whatsoever." 

In the wake of all these incidents, Kaskade has taken to Twitter to vocalize his sentiments against critics of the EDM scene:
