In September, Lionheart filed for bankruptcy, and now, Channel 11's Investigative reporter Rick Earle got his hands on that filing.
It shows Lionheart’s owner, Derek Weber, owes $744,000 to 43 different creditors. That includes $270,000 to the sponsor EQT, $126,000 to Starfire Corporation for fireworks, $35,000 to the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority and $32,000 to the Allegheny Sheriff’s Office.
The Sherrif’s Office is in the middle of arbitration with Lionheart to try to get that money back.
Just a few weeks ago, sources confirmed to Channel 11 that a grand jury investigation into these financial issues was underway.
