UMD volunteer arrested by TVA for driving 2 grandma's home.

This is so insane I cannot believe I am typing this.

I just got off the phone with UMD volunteer Matt Jones--he left me on speaker phone as the TVA police dragged him off. What was he doing?

He was literally dropping off 2 Swan Pond Grandmothers--one of which is blind in one eye--home. He had two grandmothers in the car that could not drive and he was giving them a ride home from the TDEC public meeting.

We hope to have video up on this asap. Matt is being taken to the Roane County Jail.

We are going to find out what bail is when he is arraigned. This was purely 100% TVA arrest--Roane officers had nothing to do with it.

More information to come as we get it.
