A 33-year-old man was arrested in Tennessee on Sunday for playing an audio similar to the one that was playing before the blast in downtown Nashville on Christmas day.
According to a statement from Rutherford County Sheriff’s office, James Turgeon played the audio loudly outside a convenience store and a church that was in service on Sunday.
Turgeon, was arrested and charged with two counts of felony filing a false report and one count of tampering with evidence. Deputies and Tennessee Highway Patrol stopped Turgeon in Wilson County.
No device was found on the truck but officers say Turgeon “allegedly damaged the speaker system wiring intentionally resulting in the tampering with evidence charge.”
He’s being held on $500,000 bond and a hearing is set for June 7.
Witnesses reported hearing audio from the RV in downtown Nashville saying a bomb would detonate in 15 minutes. The vehicle also played the song “Downtown” prior to the explosion, police confirmed.
The sheriff’s office did not confirm in their statement what the box truck’s audio was playing on Sunday.
