Checks bounce after Gathering of the Juggalos

HARDIN COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - A concert held back in early August is still causing headaches for one Heartland county.

According to the Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker, a check he received from the producers of Gathering of the Juggalos, bounced.

The check was donated to the department by the promoters.

Sheriff Fricker said he plans to spend the donated money on equipment.

The promoters, Psychopathic Records Inc. could not be reached for comment.

The week-long music festival is best known for keeping local law enforcement busy with drug-related arrests.

This year, a local man died at the gathering that brings out huge crowds.
