(Mansfield, MA) -- Country star Keith Urban says he "horrified" to learn of the alleged rape that occurred at his Xfinity Center performance in Mansfield, Massachusetts last weekend. The singer and "American Idol" judge released a statement saying, "this type of behavior stands in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows." Eighteen-year-old Sean Murphy has been charged with raping a 17-year-old girl on the lawn section of the venue. Police say they have collected video and pictures taken by those at the concert. Murphy says the sex was consensual. In addition to this incident, 22 people were hospitalized, and 46 treated for alcohol related issues. Police say more than 50 people were arrested.
