Coffee County judicial officials' first ever Bonnaroo docket day has resulted in 277 criminal cases stemming from the four-day music and arts festival.
The Tennessean reports two judges spent the day Friday working through a 43 page docket made up of defendants from across the country cited for drug-related charges during June's festival.
The newspaper says judges have usually spread Bonnaroo-related cases throughout the summer. But this year, they decided to hear them all on the same day.
Coffee County District Attorney General Craig Northcott cut plea deals with many defendants that included community service, paying court costs and donating money to the Coffee County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Enforcement Team.
Judges issued arrest warrants for defendants who did not attend. Court officials said about 60 percent of the cases were heard.
