Gordon said there was about a 25 percent drop in arrests from 2007 to 2008.

The drop over the past two years is a result of having a high-profile presence on the WE Fest grounds.

This year, Gordon said there was one serious assault and deputies are investigating a report of a sexual assault.

Deputies took 43 people from the WE Fest grounds to jail over five days, which includes camping days before the festival concerts began
