KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The FBI is reviewing the actions of five demoted Knox County sheriff's deputies who had a 19-year-old driver perform a stunt with a baseball bat in exchange for not issuing him traffic citations.
"We are aware of the allegations and at this time we are conducting some preliminary investigative steps," said Stacie Bohanan, spokeswoman for the Knoxville office of the FBI.
