Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)-- More charges have been added to the complaint against Last Place on Earth owner Jim Carlson, and his son.

Both Carlson, and Joseph Gellerman are facing several counts of 4th Degree Sale of a Controlled Substance; a felony in the state of Minnesota.

Combined Carlson and Gellerman are facing 16 felony counts. The prosecution alleges they sold a schedule one stimulant called Alpha PVP that was labeled "Riptide" at Last Place.

In court Thursday, Charles Hawking, the attorney representing both Carlson and Gellerman for this hearing, raised no objection to the amended complaint. Carlson's attorney has the right to object within seven days.

A contested hearing, to discuss potential constitutional and probable cause issues, will be held on June 21st.

Carlson's lawyer will work to get the complaint dismissed. Neither Carlson nor Gellerman would comment after today's hearing.
