One Person Arrested After Dozens Gather at Area 51 Gate

Police say that one person was arrested after around 75 people gathered at the gate entrance to Area 51.

The “Storm Area 51” Facebook invitation that went viral earlier this year spawned festivals in the Nevada towns of Rachel and Hiko nearest the military site. Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee estimated Thursday that about 1,500 people had gathered at the festival sites and said more than 150 people made the trip to the gate.

A man who was urinating near the gate was arrested and a woman was detained for an undisclosed reason, Lee stated.
