Fair Authority will pay for turning away bikers

On Feb. 7, 2010, scores of motorcycle riders tried to enter the Florida State Fair wearing their club patches but were turned away. Club colors were banned from the fair to control gang activity. But some of the bikers belonged to the Spirit Riders Motorcycle Ministry and the U.S. Military Vets Motorcycle Club. Hillsborough County sheriff's Maj. Al Greco, who was then a captain working off duty, trades words with Spirit Rider Dennis Walsted and veteran Mark Denico, who stands to Walsted's right. The men didn't get to enter the fair that day. But they filed a lawsuit. The two of them, along with Spirit Rider Tim Newberry will share a settlement from the Fair Authority for $72,500.
