(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Full Throttle Productions of Sturgis, South Dakota, has filed a lawsuit against the owner of the Rapid City Flying Aces indoor football team for $19,000, claiming the company was unpaid for concerts they promoted for the team.
The suit, filed against Flying Aces owner Howard Neal, alleges that the team kept all gate receipts and 20 percent of the bar sales for a Jackyl concert on March 8th, and refused to make the down payment for a Firehouse concert that was scheduled to take place a few weeks later.
Neal, who has reportedly skipped town, leaving the organization in a financial mess, contacted the Rapid City Journal to promise that he will return to fix his problems.
“It’s true that we’ve had some financial problems, and it’s true that I’ve had some problems with my partners. But we’re working it out, and the league is helping me work it out,” Neal told the paper.
The team accused him of failing to pay players, coaches and staff as well, and many local businesses claim they haven’t been paid for their services either.
A court hearing has been scheduled for the Full Throttle case next week in Rapid City. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
