Bucky Covington Denies Charges
These are facts as reported by the The Daytona Beach News-Journal.|
Bucky is accused in an incident that took place on June 30th at the Iron Horse Saloon outside Ormond Beach FL. During that performance, promoter William Fuller began to experience chest pains and was rushed to the hospital. That left his employees in charge of the ticket receipts from the door.
In the report filed with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, four witnesses reported seeing Bucky's brother, Rocky and his wife Terra take the gate money. Additionally, according to another witness, Terra was seen pocketing money as she sold ticketst the door.
Adding to the seriousness of these charges (and at this point they ARE just charges) proceeds from the show were to be used to benefit victims of the recent tornadoes in Joplin.
Again, Bucky Covington has denied all charges made by the promotoer. He's quoted in the paper as saying:
“It’s absolutely and completely false.” "The promoter didn’t have his fingers together. He did not pay people. I didn’t get paid.”
Bucky is reportedly planning some type of legal action against the promoter. No details are yet available. We'll keep you informed.
