One man was arrested on drug-related charges and three more suspected drug overdoses were reported at the 2013 Gathering of the Juggalos in Hardin County.

The man, whose name was released Thursday, was taken into custody and charged with felony possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia after a “very large drug bust last night,” a Hardin County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman said Thursday. Bond was set at $60,000.

A total of nine suspected overdoses have been reported since fans of the Insane Clown Posse began massing for the Gathering, which runs Wednesday through Sunday.

Two previous arrests were reported at the event, including an arrest for aggravated battery. That arrest occurred after an EMT responding to a report of a suspected overdose was attacked by the patient. The EMT is recovering from injuries but will need surgery related to the injuries, the spokeswoman said.

More than 10,000 people are expected to attend the annual event near Cave-In-Rock.
