In a press conference today, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner has now said that the story was "inconsistent."
A security guard that worked at Astroworld 2021 has retraced his story that he was injected in the neck with drugs at the festival.
Houston Police Chief Troy Finner had stated yesterday that police had received a report of the security officer being injected, saying that he was "reaching over to restrain a citizen and he felt a prick in his neck.
He went unconscious and they administered Narcan and he was revived. The medical staff did notice a prick that was similar to if somebody was trying to inject."
However, in a press conference today, Finner said that the officer's "story was inconsistent.
He says he was struck in his head, he went unconscious, and he woke up in the security tent. He says that no one injected drugs into him.”
Eight people have died due to the tragedy that struck when a crowd surge happened during Travis Scott's performance at Astroworld on November 5.
Several lawsuits have occurred as a result, naming organisers Travis Scott and Live Nation, as well as Drake, who made a surprise appearance during Scott's set.
This includes the family of a nine-year-old boy who is in a coma as a result of injuries suffered at the festival.
Scott, who is also one of the organisers of Astroworld, has since apologised and has offered to pay the funeral costs for all those that died.
