EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Radio hosts from the New York station that hosted a major hip-hop concert at MetLife Stadium where crowds clashed with police in the parking lot have condemned unruly fans.

Laura Stylez of the Hot 97 morning show criticized the people who threw bottles at police Sunday night. Darden said Monday that fans also shouldn’t have tried to jump the fence to get inside the venue.

Crowds at the Hot 97 Summer Jam concert became upset when the gates were closed and blocked off by police in riot gear. An armored state police vehicle began blasting a piercing loud noise to try to disperse the crowd and police later deployed tear gas.

The disturbance began when crowds of people tried to “illegally” force their way into the sold out event by climbing over fences and forcing their way through security, state police said in a statement Sunday night. Police said they insisted that everyone outside of the gate leave the stadium complex to avoid congestion when the concert ended.
