2011: A judge in Iowa ruled that 71-year-old David Allan Coe could continue a lawsuit that stemmed from an incident in June 2008 at the Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona, Iowa, that resulted in Coe being arrested. Coe had been gambling when an altercation happened after Coe hit the jackpot on a slot machine.
