Concertgoers sue after being taken into protective custody
Men sue Foxborough, police chief following actions at Springsteen concert
Two concertgoers who claim they were unlawfully taken into protective custody by Foxborough police at Gillette Stadium last month have filed a class action lawsuit against the police chief and the town, the men’s lawyers say. Plaintiffs Paul Weldner and Timothy Dutton drank alcohol and took a rented bus to the Bruce Springsteen concert on Aug. 18, the lawyers said. Before they could enter the concert, Weldner and Dutton were taken into protective custody with more than 60 people, lawyers said.
