Tracy Lawrence, Concert Promoter Face Disorderly Conduct Charges Following Fight

Tracy Lawrence and a concert promoter are facing disorderly conduct charges following a fight at an Ohio concert. The Advertiser-Tribune newspaper in Tiffin, Ohio, reports the misdemeanor charges were filed after a dispute between the singer and promoter Elmer Cole Jr. at Saturday’s (Aug. 6) Smokin’ Country Concert, a three-day festival in Bloomville. Seneca County Sheriff Bill Eckelberry told the newspaper the argument apparently stemmed from a delay in moving Lawrence’s tour bus from a parking area. The fight was over by the time deputies arrived, and Lawrence and Cole were treated and released at a local hospital. Both were issued a summons to appear in Tiffin Municipal Court. Lawrence was on a concert bill that included Randy Houser, Darryl Worley, Blackberry Smoke and Craig Campbell.
