What Caused Tragic Memphis Fire
Alan Spector Tuesday September 13, 2016

The cause of a house fire that killed nine people in Memphis is believed to have been a malfunctioning power cord. Three adults and six children--ranging in age from 61 to three--died in the fire that happened at a home on Severson Avenue Monday morning. Another child was hospitalized in critical condition. A person inside the home called 911 and said they had no way of getting out of the home which had burglar bars on the windows.

 


Gas Gets Cheaper
AAA Tuesday September 13, 2016

Gas prices have been declining since the first of the month in what AAA calls a seasonal downward spiral. One factor: refineries are switching to winter-blend gasoline, which is cheaper to produce than summer-blend gas. In Tennessee, the statewide average price for a gallon of regular is $2.00, down three cents from a week ago. In Crossville, regular averages $1.94 a gallon, down two cents.

 


WTF - Why the Fists
Alan Spector Tuesday September 13, 2016

It wasn't noticed until a Sports Illustrated photo started circulating on Monday, but three members of the Tennessee Titans raised their right fists into the air after the national anthem at Sunday's game in Nashville. Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, cornerback Jason McCourty and linebacker Wesley Woodyard say the action was intended to honor the victims and heroes of 9/11, and to bring attention to the ongoing unequal treatment of African-Americans and other minorities. During the anthem, the three Titans had their hands over their hearts.

 


Man Attacked in Tansi Beach Restroom
Samantha Sunday September 11, 2016

A man was attacked in the Tansi beach restrooms on Monday September 5th. 50 year old Kenneth Spivey was stopped by Tansi Security after a call came in of a man with a weapon. Spivey was obviously intoxicated: he smelled of alcohol, was slurring his words, and had red, bloodshot eyes. Spivey was riding a motorized wheel chair, had a plastic Sheriff badge hanging off his necklace and a pair of fake handcuffs hanging from his belt loop. Spivey had also had a gun on him, which had been taken away from him by a patron at the beach. Reportedly, he had cornered a Derek Hilley in the restrooms at Tansi beach, and tried to hold him up for his wallet, brandishing the gun. Hilley took out his wallet and made like to hand it over, but instead commandeered the weapon from Spivey and ran out of the bathroom, yelling for someone to call the police. Spivey is being held under charges for Aggravated Robbery, Criminal Impersonation, and Possession of a Prohibited Weapon.

 


Traffic Stop Results in Drug Charges
Samantha Sunday September 11, 2016

A traffic stop for driving on a revoked license led to drug charges in Cumberland County. 25 year old Cody Stafford was pulled over for driving on a revoked license, and when placed under arrest, Stafford relinquished a glass pipe that had residue in it and some marijuana. Upon being searched, five baggies of crystal meth were found on his person. The officer then gained consent from the carís owner, Emilee Aytes, to search the car, in which he found multiple empty baggies commonly used for drug distribution. Stafford was transported to the Justice Center for booking, and Aytes drove the vehicle from the scene.
