I'm using the following script to delete events from snort database.
Use it at your own risk. 
Before use it do a backup of the database with: mysqldump -opt
snort_database > /backup/snort_backup

Hope this helps.

#!/bin/bash
#
# Script to delete old data from the snort sql database.

# NOTE!  Before you can use this script, you must change the defines
# in the following lines to match those at your company.
#
# A few constants needed.  User with R/W privileges to snort database.
MYUSER="database_user"
MYPASS="password"
SNORTDB="snort_database"
# Now define the public IP address ranges used by your company.
# If you have more than one discontiguous range, you'll need to edit
# the SQL generation code lower down in this script.  It's not hard to do.
IPLOW="192.168.0.0"
IPHIGH="192.168.0.254"

Deletes old data in the snort database, keeping entries received within
the past <hours>.  You can limit the data deleted by signature or ip,
using the specified options.

Options:
        -b              Debug SQL - Prints executed SQL to stderr
        -d              Use destination IP with -r or -i; default is source.
        -i "ip"         Have the given source IP exclusive of -r.
        -n              Don't actually do anything; just look up data.
        -o              Optimize the tables after deleting.
        -r              Remote source IPs only (incoming, not outgoing).
        -s "x"          Signature must be like '%x%'

You could delete the whole snort directory under the mysql directory, but
then you will have to create the tables for snort and acid from new. Check
this directory and see if you can delete it safely and create the tables for
acid from new.

Maybe someone can give you better advice.
