Over the weekend (on Saturday, August 6), Tracy Lawrence found himself in trouble with the law after he was involved with a fight following his concert in Bloomville, Ohio. Both Lawrence and the concert promoter, Elmer Cole, Jr., were charged with disorderly conduct after a disagreement that turned physical occurred.

According to the Advertiser-Tribune, Lawrence and his crew were packed up and ready to head out of the Smokin’ Country Concert on Saturday night, but found themselves blocked in where the singer’s tour bus was parked. Lawrence and Cole exchanged words, which apparently led to punches being thrown by both parties.

The two men were transported to the hospital for minor injuries Most of Lawrence’s wounds were reported to be on his face.

Over the years, Lawrence, 43, has faced a handful of other legal issues, which include charges of reckless endangerment and spousal abuse, for which he was convicted in 1998. Both Lawrence and Cole will each appear in Tiffin Municipal Court at a later date to face their charges of disorderly conduct.

Smokin’ Country Concert was a three-day concert festival that also included performances by Darryl Worley, Craig Campbell and Randy Houser. Houser’s performance was to take place following Lawrence’s set on Saturday, but was canceled due to weather. Lawrence has continued his touring schedule as planned following the events on Saturday.
