A concert featuring Trick Daddy and Khia was
moved from a remote area of Suwannee County, Florida to Gainesville on Saturday,
prompting organizers to cry racism.
The concert was scheduled to take place at The
Sugar Shack, but was halted when Suwannee County sheriff officials served the
owner with an injunction to cancel the event, because certain permits had not
been obtained ahead of time.
Reports said that at the time the injunction
was served, over 70 police and sheriff officials were in the area.
"Look at all the resources the county brought
in to prevent this event, but they spent no time or resources to allow us to
have this event," concert organizer Rick Brown told The Gainesville Sun.
Art Picklo, owner of The Sugar Shack, said that
he is considering legal action to recoup the costs of moving the show to Gainesville.
He said that he requested a meeting to obtain the permits, but the request to
meet was denied.
