A security guard working at Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival was not in fact jabbed with a needle containing opioids, as was initially reported by authorities, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said Wednesday.
Houston police chief walks back the viral story that a security guard was drugged through a needle prick at Astroworld festival “He said no one injected drugs in him”.
A security guard at Astroworld says he was hired through text message. Jackson Bush says when he showed up they did not ask for ID, phone number, or qualifications. But handed him a security vest. He says he was not prepared for what happened next

Kim Iversen This actually raises more questions than answers. If there wasn’t someone injecting people, then what caused the cardiac arrests? Drug use? Possible. Crowd surge would cause traumatic compression which causes asphyxia not cardiac arrest. We know some.
Jon Collins “The unsubstantiated claim about the syringe attack is yet another case of law enforcement sharing unfounded claims about the risk of drug exposure for first responders and others.”
