By The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A sheriff’s office in Tennessee says the driver of a box truck that was heard playing audio at a convenience store outside of Nashville has been booked into jail on felony charges.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office says customers at the market where the white box truck was spotted Sunday morning and members of a nearby church heard the driver playing audio “similar to what was heard” before a recreational vehicle exploded in downtown Nashville on Christmas Day.

Thirty-three-year-old James Turgeon has been detained and charged with felony filing a false report and tampering with evidence for intentionally damaging the speaker system. No device was found in the truck.
