A Kentucky man is
accused of using Jason Aldean's name to steal $9,000 from the family of a sick
little girl as well as a Louisville business who was trying to help.
30-year-old Kyle Nunn, is charged with two felony counts of
theft by deception after he went to Baxter's 942, a bar and grill in
Louisville, and entered into an agreement with the business to plan a benefit
concert for little 3-year-old Addie who suffers from Pre-B ALL Leukemia.
The business wrote him a $6000 check with the understanding
that would go to get Jason Aldean to perform at their place.
The man then went to the family of the sick child and told
them he needed $3000 more to get the concert to happen. The parents then gave
him a check from the child's foundation, Addie's Army, with the understanding
that Jason Aldean would be performing to help raise money for the little girl.
Police say that Nunn and his stepfather, who one of the
checks was made out to, then cashed them and pocketed the cash.
Nunn was arrested on January 31st because Jason Aldean was
in no way tied to him. It's not known if Nunn's stepfather was an innocent
victim or in on the scam.
