Chief of Police Wade Carpenter got hit with a bottle but he's okay.
Wiz Khalifa concerts are usually pretty peaceful. There's typically a lot of weed smoke and liquor involved and Wiz himself is encouraging the good vibes. Unfortunately, an issue with a police officer seemingly escalated and resulted in a recent concert getting shut down, Page Six reports.

Wiz was turning up on Saturday morning at Hotspot Park City Live in Park City, Utah when a police officer was hit with a bottle. Chief of Police Wade Carpenter asked Wiz Khalifa, who was smoking on stage, to put out his joint. It's a Wiz Khalifa concert so the idea of putting out a joint wasn't necessarily a reasonable request. So the rapper refused and then someone in the audience threw a bottle that hit the officer.
"Officers from the PCPD were conducting compliance checks on Main Street Friday night January 24, 2020, and found multiple code violations at PC Live. Despite warnings, the music venue was eventually shut down,” a spokesman for the Park City Police Department said. “A PCPD officer was struck in the head by a thrown object. Luckily, his injury did not require medical attention but did result in a small laceration.”
The venue opened back open on Saturday where the Chainsmokers performed. Wiz seemingly acknowledged the altercation, writing, "I had to run from the cops last night. Good thing I remembered my training #taylorgang." Adding, "Homie wit tha badge can succ it easy. He ruined it for everybody."
