An Indiana resident was killed after an intoxicated man drove a car into the crowd following a Trace Adkins concert.
A 42-year-old man has been charged with murder after he allegedly drove his vehicle through the crowd following a Trace Adkins concert in Huntsville, Tenn.
According to the Associated Press, Billy Jason Carson was allegedly intoxicated when he started a fight in the concert area around 11 pm, just after Trace Adkins left the stage. Carson left the area, then got in and proceeded to drive his Toyota 4-Runner back to the area, drove it around the crowd and began to threaten people with a gun. He began to spin the car through the crowd and proceeded to hit four individuals in the crowd. 52-year-old Tony Farrell ran into the crowd to try and help another individual who was being dragged by the car but was himself run over by Carson. According to CMT, Farrell died of his injuries at a nearby hospital the next morning.
Carson’s vehicle was rammed by another individual’s Jeep who finally brought his Toyota to a stop and allowed event security to bring the intoxicated man into custody.
Carson has been charged with criminal homicide and reckless endangerment. He is being held on $500,000 bond at the Scott County Justice Center.
