The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia ABC board have dramatically different accounts of what happened last year at the Lock’n Festival.
Courteney Stuart of C’Ville Weekly covered a hearing last Friday where local and state agencies displayed their differences. The ABC hearing focused on last September’s four day festival that attracted 25,000 people to the Oak Ridge Estate in Nelson County. ABC agents complained about widespread abuses of Virginia’s liquor laws. Stuart says there was also a focus on what’s called prohibited behavior, and one ABC agent videotaped a woman who did some topless sunbathing. Stuart was a Wednesday guest on the Schilling Show.
