EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Weather wasn’t the only thing to put a damper on a hip-hop concert in New Jersey.

A fight broke out Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, delaying a show that already was starting late due to bad weather.

Organizers canceled an outdoor pre-show for Hot 97 Summer Jam scheduled for Sunday afternoon as strong storms moved through the area. Thousands of concert goers got drenched in the parking lot, while their tailgating tents were destroyed.

Later, a fight broke out in the floors seats after the show’s billed Terror Squad reunion featuring Fat Joe and Remy Ma and folding chairs went flying, NJ.com reported.

Several people sustained minor injuries and police made three arrests, CBS2 reproted. In another incident, someone with a slashing injury was hospitalized, and one person was taken into custody.

State police say they’re investigating.

Last year, 61 people were arrested and 10 state troopers were injured during a clash outside Summer Jam.
