Tennessee man arrested for playing the same audio from his truck as Nashville bomber Anthony Warner
Tennessee authorities were concerned of repeating the Nashville explosion incident and arrested a man who played “similar” music as Anthony Quinn Warner in his car parked outside a church.
The copycat alert came on Sunday after 33-year-old James Turgeon parked his white box truck outside Kings Chapel Independent Missionary Baptist Church and played the same audio as Nashville suicide bomber did before allegedly exploding his van on Christmas Day.
The audio was Petula Clark’s 1964 single “Downtown.”
The multiple 911 calls to the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday reported of the Turgeon’s truck. He was pulled over during a traffic stop in Wilson County.
A robot to sniff for explosives was used on his truck but there was no bomb found, Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Turgeon has been charged with two counts of felony filing a false report and one count of tampering with evidence and is being held on $500,000 bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center.
The panic around this audio track would probably return the "popularity" to the song. At least the comments under a YouTube video of Petula Clark's "Downtown" increased and they are mostly of the Nashville blast.
