Reporter Joe Bruno of WSOC-TV in Charlotte. NC, tweeted this afternoon that PNC Music Pavilion has terminated the Indian Trail, NC, company after three employees were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly assaulting Wallace and his family following a concert by the country group Rascal Flats.
“We were saddened by the regrettable events that took place on Friday, June 17,” said a statement from the venue’s management. “After learning that the offensive actions were taken by patrons who also happened to be employed by Lucas Landscaping, one of our service providers, we took swift and immediate action to terminate services provided by Lucas Landscaping at PNC Music Pavilion.”
Earlier today, the owners of Lucas Lawn and Landscaping issued a written statement complaining of “verbal attacks upon our business” by the media and general public, claiming that only one of the three men arrested is an employee. “This situation arose at an event that did not involve our business or the operation of the business in any way,” they said.
