Birmingham takes motorcycle show to court

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham city leaders are taking the promoters of a motorcycle show to court.

The city council gave $25,000 to the group behind the "Vulcan Bike Week" event, but at the last minute, the show's promoters moved the event to Saint Clair County.

Mayor Bell says holding the bike show outside the city limits breaks the contract and the city wants its money back.

The $25,000 check has already been cashed.
