Premiere Entertainment Group claims promoter Ron Herring wrote PEG an insufficient funds check in that amount to pay for work it performed at the “Faith, Family, and Football” event held at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds. The lawsuit, filed Thursday, also lists Herring’s company, Matthew 23:12 Promotions, as a defendant.
“The night of the event (June 21), Herring gave PEG (a) check from the Matthew account for $35,000.00. That check has been presented for payment numerous times, and was returned,” the complaint claims. It continued, “Since the event, PEG has attempted to collect the $35,000.00 to no avail, despite numerous assurances from Herring.
The lawsuit also claims a $12,000 check written earlier was also returned but made it good by a cashier’s check.
Tebow, now a football player for the New England Patriots, was featured at the event along with contemporary Christian music artist Mark Shultz. Neither is mentioned in the lawsuit.
Herring has 30 days to respond to the allegations after which a court date will be set.
The legal action was filed by attorney Russell N. Parrish of the law firm Farmer, Price, and Hornsby.
