Bucky Faces Felony Theft Charges

Promoter says he stole $1,500 at show.

A show promoter in Florida has accused Bucky Covington and Bucky’s twin brother and sister-in-law of stealing about $1,500 cash, according to a police report posted by TMZ.com. Bucky has taken to his Twitter account to deny any wrongdoing.

In the police report, the promoter says Bucky was set to play June 30 at the Iron Horse Saloon in Ormond Beach, Fla. And here’s where things get a little confusing. That promoter, William Fuller, says he ended up going to the hospital around 9 that night. And when he did, Fuller says Bucky “directed” his twin brother/drummer, Rocky, and Rocky’s wife, Terra, to snatch the cash at the front door. Fuller alleges Terra even sold tickets at the door and pocketed the money.

Bucky’s response: “Hey Guys and Gals, I'm sure most of you have seen the news on TMZ. This story is absolutely false in every way. I would never steal anything from anyone. I did not get paid, but went on to play my full show and had a great time performing for fans! I thank all of you for your continued support!”

Bucky went on to tell The Daytona Beach News-Journal that Fuller didn’t pay any of the vendors that night. “This is just a paint job gone bad,” Covington told the paper.

A Florida state’s attorneys office spokeswoman says the charges are under investigation. Bucky, Rocky and Terra all face felony grand theft charges.
