Lawrence County Zephyr Withdraws Support of Truck Meet - Juveniles detained for illegal consumption

BEDFORD - MAY 30, 2023 - Lawrence County Zephyr has supported the local truck meet held at Smokin Jim's BBQ parking lot on at least three occasions. However, following the arrest of three juveniles over the weekend coming from the truck event, that support has been withdrawn.

Lawrence County Zephyr has stated on numerous occasions that as long as the event stays alcohol and drug free the local media website will support the Lawrence County event.

The organizers of these events must ensure that no underage drinking or drug use occurs

A 16-year-old female, and 17-year-old male Ellettsville, and 18-year-old, Spencer were detained by Bedford Police Department.

Jesse Knight, 18, Spencer was taken to the Lawrence County jail and the two remaining teens was issued summons, and released to their parents.

The safety of the public and attendees are important, and drugs and alcohol are not a very good combination at these events.

The organizers did not do a very good job of making sure the events remain safe for the public and those who attend.

Due to the basis of these facts the Lawrence County Zephyr withdraws its support of the truck meet.
