Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission: Beware Flood-Related Vehicle Scams
tn.gov Wednesday September 20, 2017

Consumers who are shopping for a new vehicle should be aware that flood-damaged cars and trucks from states ravaged by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma will eventually surface in Tennessee. In an effort to raise awareness, the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission, which is part of the Department of Commerce & Insurance's Regulatory Boards division, is warning consumers to be alert for scammers who might disguise severely water-damaged vehicles as being perfectly good.

Scammers typically attempt to sell flooded vehicles quickly after a disaster, hoping to stay ahead of computer system updates so that title check systems don't have time to detect the car's history. By the time a consumer discovers the vehicle's history, the seller will be long gone.

Also, be aware that there will be many recreational and powersport-type vehicles that have been damaged as a result of the recent storms as well. Look for the signs of flooding and saltwater damage before purchasing these units, too.

For more consumer tips on how to avoid buying flood damaged vehicles go online to the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission website or call 615-741-2711.

Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday September 20, 2017

A Crab Orchard man is recovering after he was brutally attacked with a hatchet. The attack occurred shortly after 4 o'clock Sunday morning at the Brenda Lane Apartments. A witness called police after being awakened by loud banging and seeing three males arguing outside. One of the males, identified as 21-year-old Bradley Price, was reportedly trying to pull the victim out of a pickup truck. A second attacker, identified as Jacob Edmonds, allegedly began hitting the victim with a hatchet. The witness heard one of the males exclaim, "Jacob, I need to go to the hospital, my arm is nearly cut off!" The attackers fled on foot and the victim managed to drive away in the truck. Shortly after, Police located the victim who was able to drive himself to CMC to get stitches for several cuts on his right arm. The victim told police that he had been hanging out with Edmonds earlier in the evening and Edmonds had asked the victim to give him a ride to Brenda Lane Apartments. Once he parked, Mr. Price suddenly appeared and opened up the driver's side door of the victim's truck, demanding the victim fight Edmonds. That is when Mr. Edmonds reportedly exited the vehicle and pulled out a small hatchet and exclaimed, "Let's fight!" According to reports, the victim said while Price was trying to pull him out of the truck, Edmonds got back in the vehicle and began hitting him with the hatchet. As the victim was fending off the blows, Edmonds grabbed the truck keys out of the ignition. That is when the victim began yelling for help. The victim somehow managed to start the truck and drive away from his attackers. Authorities caught up with both Price and Edmonds at a residence on Braun Cove. Police say Bradley Price told them that Jacob Edmonds was the person who attacked the victim. Edmonds reportedly denied any knowledge of the incident. He was charged with Aggravated Assault. Police found a hatchet case in the victim's truck but the weapon had not been recovered at the time of the report.
