MAJOR DRUG BUST AT THE GATHERING: [UPDATED WITH PIC]
HARDIN CO.---Sources reported to us yesterday that there's been a major drug bust at The Gathering of the Juggalos in Hardin County.
We held off on the information on the off chance that we could learn the name of the individual busted, but so far, no such luck.
Our sources have indicated that Illinois State Police made the bust either late Wednesday night/early Thursday morning, August 7/8.
We're interested in learning not only who the man (we at least know it was male) was, where he's from, how old, and in particular, two things: What kind of dope, and whether this occurred on the grounds of Hog Rock Campgrounds, or off. If on, then a precedent has been set where none has succeeded in past years, which is to say, someone gained access to the private property owned by Tim York and was able to stop some of the mass drug trading going on at The Gathering (which is really kicking into high gear for the weekend, with all their largely-unknown rap artists set to perform:
The drug bust was preceded by a violent Jugg being taken off the grounds Wednesday before the festivities started, which we chronicled here, this Jugg having ingested the same synthetic drug the rest of the ODs (nine so far) taken off the grounds by public-supported ambulances to a public-supported hospital have. In that particular instance, as it turns out, the combative Jugg actually injured the responding EMT, cracking the orbit of
his her (CORRECTED) eye, and it's reported to us that this EMT will need surgery. Guess who pays for that...? Yep, us, since the EMT was on duty, the ambulance was a publicly-supported conveyance, the public support the ambulance service gets doesn't JUST come from the county from which it originates but is also funded by state and federal tax dollars at varying times...and it's highly unlikely that the Jugg is employed and paying taxes at all, let alone has any kind of insurance that will cover his medical treatment.
We've not learned whether this drug bust has put a dent in the celebrations at the event, but then, we've not had any further reports of ODs yet, either...but keep watching today. If it happens, we'll get it.
