LEE COUNTY, Fla.- New court documents reveal how Gary Brooks allegedly found his victims.

He ran across Mickey Ross and his family at a local sports bar. Ross says he seemed legitimate, and even drew up a purchase order for the tickets. Months later, they never showed up.

Only later did a detective find out Brooks was already in trouble in Kentucky for pulling the same scheme on fans in that state.

Brooks is due back in court in December.
