Troopers say the eight people they arrested between Monday and Wednesday in the town of New Lebanon were charged with marijuana possession, driving while intoxicated or driving while ability impaired. Those arrested included three local residents, three people from neighboring Massachusetts and one from Vermont.

The arrests occurred during the Monster Jam truck show at Lebanon Valley Speedway, located near the Massachusetts border 25 miles southeast of Albany.

Troopers say they also investigated eight accidents and incidents on and around the speedway grounds during the three-day event.
