Dierks did some fishing too over the weekend.

Luke Bryan played the festival as well and the guys were actually comparing their fishing stories on stage.

According to the Denver Post, a fan in the audience decided to pass the word onto the Colorado Parks and Wildlife to check and see if they had the proper license…and they didn’t.

When a local cop saw Dierks walking through town he flagged him down and Dierks paid the fee in cash.

Bentley paid the $139.50 fine in cash on the spot, Vogrin said.

“He was as nice as can be,” Vogrin said. “We welcome him back any time to fish, as long as he gets a license next time.”

Dierks posted a video online of himself in the truck as the officer wrote him a ticket. He warned Luke Bryan that he may be next to receive a ticket.

Little heads up Lukey. Hardy…..?!🤔
Actually appreciate the ticket. Appreciate being treated like a regular person. Appreciate what @COParksWildlife does. I’ll be all licensed up next time! @LukeBryanOnline @HardyMusic pic.twitter.com/m13EWYrXsN

Dierks has since deleted the video.

Luke may get off the hook (pun intended) because he didn’t post photographic evidence of his crime but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. A Colorado Parks spokesman did say that “the case is under investigation.” (Denver Post)
