They sure know how to stand in line for rock concert tickets in Texas. Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit and members of Cypress Hill joined fans outside Houston’s Aerial Theater yesterday morning, handing out wristbands to the 5,000 who’d been up all night in order to receive the passes to their Napster-sponsored free concerts (one held last night, and the other scheduled for tonight). They might also have handed out overcoats: The night before, some in line erupted into a wet T-shirt contest that eventually brought out the cops. “Three people were arrested on charges of public intoxication, two for indecent exposure and two on theft (of a cellular telephone),” Houston Police Department spokesman Robert Hurst informed PEOPLE. “It was wild,” Shandel Hardin, 20ish, told PEOPLE. “All the girls were getting on guys shoulders.” Before the police arrived, one participant collected some $300 from appreciative members of the crowd. While Hardin says that some of the female participants ran off immediately, she sauntered away inconspicuously — and avoided arrest. Well, maybe not so inconspicuously. “I was walking downtown with just my wet T-shirt and my underwear,” she revealed.
