Promoter Charged Again

An Arizona promoter who was indicted on three felony theft charges stemming from a rock festival he threw in October was charged with two additional counts of felony theft unrelated to the concert.

A local business claims Ron Paterson of BKR Productions has committed more than $10,000 in theft on two separate occasions, according to Today’s News-Herald.

Paterson pleaded not guilty on May 14th to charges that he failed to pay outstanding debts from his festival at Lake Havasu State Park to a local security company, a Howard Johnson motel and the band Cheap Trick, the paper said.
