Last Saturday, just after 9:00 pm, the Knoxville Police Department was alerted by a woman claiming that her vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Restaurant.

36-year-old James Hensley was the owner and president of Knoxville Auto Brokers in Knoxville, Tennessee, from 2012 until the day he shut his business down last April.

When Hensley closed his doors for good he allegedly left some of the clients of his establishment with financial problems because he accepted trade-in vehicles from them with the understanding that the car dealership would finish paying off any outstanding balances owed on those automobiles. When he did not comply with the contractual agreements to make the payments the original owners were sent bills for the amount that was still owed.

Six months after Knoxville Auto Brokers went out of business Hensley had his license allowing him to sell cars in Tennessee revoked by the state based on charges alleging that he failed to provide a total of 24 titles to the new owners of vehicles that customers had purchased from him.

A Florida man is suspected of constructing a contraption meant to cause injury by delivering a shock, and attaching it to the front door in an attempt to electrocute his wife who is currently with child.

On Tuesday, 32-year-old Michael Wilson, who is separated from his wife, allegedly told her that she should not use the garage door to enter her home because it was malfunctioning. He was also said to have made comments that involved keeping children from touching the front door. This alarmed his father-in-law and the authorities were notified about the questionable proclamation.

Flagler County Sheriff’s Department dispatched deputies to the house in order to investigate the situation, and they noticed charring near the handle of the door, and the door looked as if it was blocked off. They decided to enter the premises by kicking the door which reportedly threw a spark upon impact.
