Morristown Man Charged After Hitting Deputy In Stolen Vehicle
TBI/Peg Broadcasting News Monday November 6, 2017

A Morristown man has been charged with Attempted Murder after he hit a Hamblen County Sheriff's Deputy while attempting to flee in a stolen truck. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations says that deputies received information that a vehicle, previously reported stolen, was at a business along Lakeshore Road Saturday night in Morristown. Upon arrival, two deputies located the stolen truck and began to approach the driver, later identified as 40-year-old Anthony Duane Sizemore. At that point Sizemore accelerated and struck one of the deputies. The other deputy fired shots at the vehicle, striking the Sizemore one time. The injured deputy was transported to the hospital for treatment. A short time later, the stolen truck was located in Cocke County. Anthony Sizemore was also located and taken into custody. He was transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. He is charged with Attempted First Degree Murder. Upon being released from the hospital, Sizemore was booked into the Hamblen County Jail. At this time, the investigation remains active and ongoing. (Photo courtesy TBI)

 


Former execs at Haslam-owned truck stop chain head to trial
AP Monday November 6, 2017

The country's largest truck stop chain was flying high. Its CEO had recently bought a pro football team and his brother was the popular governor of Tennessee hinting at aspirations for national office. Then federal agents descended on the family-owned company's headquarters.
The ramifications for Pilot Flying J were immense. Fourteen former members of the sales team pleaded guilty to participating in a scheme to rip off trucking company customers they deemed too unsophisticated to realize they weren't receiving the rebates they had negotiated.
Four former executives, including the onetime Pilot president, go on trial in Chattanooga on Monday, November 6, 2017.
Pilot, which is run by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, agreed to an $85 million settlement with most of the defrauded customers and a $92 million penalty to the government.
