GJPD Called to Help Calm Upset Audience Members at Comedy Show #GVCopBeat

Posted on

The Grand Junction Police Department responded to the Avalon Theatre last night, after audience members became angry with the performance of comedian Ralphie May.

Prior to police officers arriving, private security guards had to escort a handful of people out of the theater who were yelling at May during his performance.  The Avalon staff called 911 when 15-20 angry audience members began gathering in the lobby, demanding their money back, complaining that May was intoxicated.

Four officers arrived on scene and quickly calmed the group and de-escalated the situation.  No one was hurt during the incident, and further investigation showed no laws were broken so there were no arrests or citations issued.  Officers escorted May to his bus to ensure his safety.  May and his crew then left town.
