Former Manager of the Allman Brothers Indicates that he is Lucky to be Alive after Pickup Truck Rams into a Bar in Macon, Georgia
MACON, GA – According to an online news report at macon.com, a man who was the manager of the Allman Brothers Band indicated that he is “lucky to be alive” after an eighty year old man driving a pickup truck rammed several times into a Macon bar where the manager was playing poker.*
The manager was playing in a poker tournament at about 4:30 p.m. at the 20’s Pub & Subs on Riverside Drive close to Northside Drive when he heard a loud crash.
A pickup truck slammed into the building “completely destroying the pool, poker and dart area where I was,” according a posting by the manager on Facebook. “He made three passes! I was buried under the table and survived with minor cuts and bruises. Several others more seriously hurt and sent to emergency room. A miracle no one killed.”
The 2004 Chevrolet Colorado backed up and rammed into the bar twice and fled the scene, per a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Several individuals were treated at the scene for injuries they sustained. A 71-year-old year old man and a 57-year-old woman were transported to an area hospital for treatment. Both the individuals were later released from the hospital.
Police were able to track the Chevrolet to an 80-year-old man. He was arrested at this home in the 200 block of Marjane Drive, which is located about six miles from the pub where the manager was located.
The octogenarian was facing charges of six counts of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, one count of felony property damage and driving under the influence of alcohol. He is currently at the Bibb County jail.
