THP In Town For Bonnaroo Court

More than the usual number of Tennessee Highway Patrol cars and motorcycles were parked at the Coffee County Justice Center yesterday. General Sessions Judge Tim Brock issued subpoenas for all of the troopers who issued tickets during Bonnaroo to be in attendance. That meant that troopers from as far away as Memphis had to make the trip to Manchester to attend yesterday’s court proceedings. Many of the tickets were dismissed. Several people called into “Straight Talk” on Thunder Radio after Bonnaroo to complain about how they were treated by out-of-town THP officers during the June event.
