(Banana 101.5) Rockapalooza, the Jackson, MI rock festival that had its sixth outing in 2013, is officially a thing of the past. The news comes after promoter Tim Corser was charged with felonies related to the festival itself.

Rockapalooza maestro Tim Corser has been accused of writing multiple bad checks to vendors for the festival. According to MLive, Corser is charged with three counts of issuing checks for $500 or more without sufficient funds with intent to defraud. Each count carries a maximum sentence of 2 years in prison and $2,000 (or three times the amount payable, whichever is greater) in fines.

It was stated on the Rockapalooza Facebook page on Tuesday (December 3rd) that the fest is officially done. Corser later told MLive via email that the charges had no bearing on the decision. You can see the full statement here.
