AAAH, our illustrious county was savaged on newschannel5 last night. Seems our boys were sent to the rescue of a former investigator from here...sent all the way outside thier own jurisdiction, in fact, just to harass a news crew. They wound up running away with their tails tucked between their legs! Thanks, guys, for showing the rest of the state how we handle things in this county! Hello, Overton Countians! I know you're just as disgusted with this whole sorry deal as I am! Any thoughts?

i can tell from your post you don't want phil anywhere near you, i think there must be a very good reason for that.as far as trash i love every min of this. anytime i get to see a couple of bully ass deputys put in their place just warms my heart. i honestly hope phil comes to your town. you can't bully phil and you won't stop him from doing his report.next time i would suggest someone advise these knothead deputys you have to stay in your on county if you are going to push around an investigative reporter from a major news media. what a couple of dingbats.

It's not like it's the first time it's happened, in the last 7 months.

Alex Boles anyone?
The Eibel Murder?
Heft?
UCDD and Curtis Hayes / Ron Cyrus?

Some winners we have around here.

What if one of the deputies had wrecked and killed someone up there?
What if one of the deputies had assaulted or hurt someone from Newschannel 5?
This has to be the icing on the cake because many have seen so much more but are afraid to say anything. Ive heard lots of stuff about what the Monterey Police have done to people there and that goes for Overton County also!
Looks like Phil isnt done with this yet!
Lots of stories up here Phil if you can get anyone brave enough to tell you.

drug money

I thought that drug money was to be used for things to help the fight on drugs, what do they police need a bulldozer for, to bulldoze drug dealers out of town, weird for money in the first place to buy a bulldozer

They heard someone was traveling down I-40 with $20 bucks in their pocket. They were trying to beat the monterey cops to it.

Maybe some of us have a life and are not glued to the boob tube 24/7. Maybe we ask questions instead of ASSuming everything we see on the magic box is the gospel truth.

all the action 'was' taking place in overton county , barely in overton county, at the home of the monterey police chief. he or someone called the sheriffs dept I would assume and requested assistance because of trespassers or whatever. so it was perfectly legal for the deputies to investigate.
its no fault of the sheriffs dept that Monterey police drug money was used to buy a caterpillar and it was being used on private property at their chief of police property, i think he was a deputy here at one time and also a city policeman.
so before youall start getting your hemorrhoids in a whirlwind, remember to do a little Phil Williams Investigating before starting some shit here,

You are right! They were in the right. They are supposed to answer calls in the county. I think an appology is in order. These guys did exactly as they were supposed to do. Just because you don like WB---well that is your problem. WB has been the best sheriff this county has ever had. He will have the job as long as he wants it.
