    I attend several concerts at Walnut Creek every year and I have never felt unsafe. I'll admit, there doesn't seem to be very much security there at all and I have even had several fights happen near me in the lawn. It's just like any public place you go to, you should always be aware of things going on around you and always be aware of the people around you. My biggest disappointment going there is how sloppy drunk some of the folks get,especially the young girls. Yes, I do drink a few drinks when I go but, the girls in dresses and skirts falling around is completely uncalled for. I was there Friday night and will probably continue to go there. Something like this could happen anywhere, it will just make me be alot more careful and aware the next time I attend.

    I heard he cut someone off leaveing and three guys jumped out and went to beating on him and he pulled his gun out of the car and popped a cap in one and left. Don't blame him one bit.

    Looks like they are going to have to stop serving alcohol and add more security (not event staff) just to feel somewhat safe. It is sad when you can't go out and enjoy yourself when you have people acting like this. SMH

    Actually, it's usually not our homegrown countryboys that cause the problems at these venues.

    Walnut Creek/Time Warner, to me, has always been a vulnerable venue. The times I've been (I don't go anymore), very little security,none if you don't count the event staff/marshalls. Everytime I've been drunkeness and luid behavior ruled- I've discussed this over the years with friends and aquaintances, few disagreed and most I know avoid the venue-
    Fun

    Exactly what I've noticed as well. I even had someone come up and try to start a fight with me for no reason. Very rude behavior everywhere I went and this was at a Dave Matthews concert. Will never go back there.
