Security guard trampled at Music Festival

MIAMI -

The Miami Police Department is reporting more than 80 arrests from the three-day Ultra Music Festival.

Police say officers made 22 arrests Friday, 33 arrests Saturday and 29 arrests Sunday.

A private security guard suffered severe brain hemorrhaging and a broken leg Friday after being trampled by a crowd trying to hop the festival's fence. Miami Police spokeswoman Frederica Burden tells The Miami Herald that no arrests have been made in that incident.

Burden says the guard remained in critical condition, though she was breathing on her own and showing signs of improvement.

Last year, police arrested 167 people during the electronic music festival in a downtown Miami park. Mayor Tomas Regalado and other city officials say they no longer want Miami to host the annual festival.
