INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An attorney says Sugarland’s version of what happened before last summer’s deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair is inconsistent with another witness account.
The Star says Nettles testified that the country duo was never told fair officials had asked to delay the concert because of an approaching storm and that the band probably would have postponed the show if they had been asked.
State Fair Executive Director Cindy Hoye testified that she asked Sugarland’s tour manager to delay the show but was told that the band refused.
Attorney Kenneth J. Allen says Nettles‘ version is “inconsistent.” Band spokesman Allan Meyer called Allen’s remarks “scurrilous.”
