Rustic Mill Tavern Owner Charged

Big trouble for a tavern owner in Black River Falls. Brian Adkins was charged

this week with paying someone to burn the Rustic Mill down 2 years ago. He was charged with hiring one of his part-time employees, Kyle Rott, to set the fire.


Police say Rott told them that Adkins and his son, Tyler Keck, approached him about burning down the bar for $10 thousand. Keck has also been charged. Rott faces arson charges.

Adkins was also charged this with failing to turn over to the state more than $30 thousand in sales tax and employee withholdings. In all, court records show that Adkins faces six felony charges and four misdemeanors in connection with the restaurant and the fire.
