Scooter was a former Allman Brothers Band road manager whose drug conviction in the 1970s were said to contribute to the breakup of the band. Scooter Herring was pursued by federal prosecutors during the 1970s, accusing him of supplying singer and keyboardist Gregg Allman with cocaine. To avoid criminal charges, Allman testified against Herring and gave details of his own drug use. In 1976, Herring was convicted of five drug offenses and was sentenced to 75 years in prison. Considering Allman's testimony a betrayal, the band broke up. Herring's conviction was later overturned by the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals, and he ended up serving 30 months. . . . Scooter Herring had a long career in the music entertainment industry. He worked for and toured with both The Allman Brothers Band and The Gregg Allman Band in various capacities. He was a tour manager for Sea Level, the band fronted by former Allman Brothers Band member Chuck Leavell.
