Two Days After Nashville Bombing, Box Truck Scare In Rutherford County Ends In Arrest
In the wake of the downtown Nashville bombing, investigators say there is not an ongoing threat in Middle Tennessee. But a box truck driver in Rutherford County still drew a massive response on Sunday afternoon.
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office investigated reports of a truck that parked outside of a church and Crossroads Market and played loud audio similar to the RV that issued warnings before exploding in downtown Nashville two days earlier.
The truck was stopped on Highway 231 South and a state bomb squad found no explosive device.
Authorities charged 33-year-old driver James Turgeon on felony counts of filing a false report and tampering with evidence.
