ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

While Phish fans partied hard in Reading last week, their counterparts at the Jersey shore apparently partied even harder.

Police said they arrested 42 people during Phish concerts in Atlantic City last weekend.

Phish closed out its fall tour with appearances at Boardwalk Hall after performing a sold-out show at the Santander Arena in Reading on Oct. 29.

Reading police and city officials, who seemed to be prepared for anything and everything, reported no major problems on the night of the show.

It was a different story, however, in Atlantic City, where police said they uncovered a variety of drugs, including hashish, psilocybin mushrooms, LSD in paper blotters and sugar cubes, during undercover operations from Thurs., Oct. 31, through Sat., Nov 2.
