Crews extend search in river

The Wilson Post

Agencies are extending their search toward Gallatin for the body of 15-year-old James Davis who is believed to have drowned in the Cumberland River on Sunday.

Wilson County Emergency Management Director John Jewell said his agency, along with the Wilson County Sheriffs Department, the Hendersonville Fire Department and Rutherford County Special Operations, resumed their search on Wednesday morning with sonar technology.

We usually start with the search dogs and try to take any indications they give us on areas of interest. Rutherford has a Towfish Sonar, which is not directly attached to their boat, that they have brought to search, he explained.

A 17-year-old male wanted by police for his alleged part in an armed robbery attempt in Mt. Juliet should be considered armed and dangerous.

Chandler said the investigation reveals that the victim was in the 700 block of Curd Road when two male suspects approached the victim outside and attempted to rob him. A third suspect waited nearby in a vehicle. During the attempted robbery, there was a brief struggle. A suspect, Freeman, reportedly fired a shot from a handgun toward the victim. After the shot was fired, the suspects fled the area in a silver car.

Circuit Judge John Wootten Jr. was recently elected President of the Tennessee Trial Judges Association at the annual judicial conference held in Nashville in June.

The Tennessee Trial Judges Association is composed of Circuit, Chancery and Criminal Court Judges across the state of Tennessee.

Woottens term of office as the President of the Association will be until June 2014, although historically the presidents of the Association have served two consecutive one-year terms. He will serve as the spokesperson for the Association relating to all issues that concern the trial judiciary.

Prior to his election as President, Wootten had served for four years on the executive committee of the Association.
