Slot machine in county clerk’s office prompts police probe

Thursday, March 18, 2010 at 1:35pm

The Metro Police Department confirmed it has opened an investigation to determine if Davidson County Clerk’s Office employees were gambling on the job.

Police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford said the department’s Specialized Investigation Division began a preliminary investigation into whether or not Metro employees used tokens to play games resembling slot machines at work. The investigation follows a WTVF-Channel 5 report Wednesday night.

“Officers from the Specialized Investigations Division did go out to investigate. The machines were not present. They had apparently been brought in just for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.”

Mumford said the investigation will try to determine whether employees stood to lose money from the games — gambling — or if employees offered to pay out money to other employees for certain outcomes on the machines.

“If they were not in a position to lose money it’s not gambling,” Mumford said. “We’re very early [in the investigation], so we want to look into it some more.”

When The City Paper contacted the clerk’s office, Chief Deputy Clerk Joey Workman said he wouldn’t comment on the incident.

A Copy of a message sent in my needful regard to MY previous web-site address. Message Sent:

With all due respect; the ‘domain name’ (tharonchandler.com) was mine as purchased in January 2008 and also is my given name, alone. In my best judgement [someone] have ‘hi-jacked’ the domain against my wishes and against my better judgement. Though the material is not in bad focus (antiques and art) I actually have not submitted it and could not reply to an pertinent inquiry; and worse the header continues to list me as a candidate in Missouri, of which I certainly am not. I ask you to ‘cease and desist’ in the use of this and any similar domain name, on the world wide web, under penalty of [my misgivings]. Clear.

Some time ago, I did need to buy a good car for my firm but I didn't earn enough money and could not purchase something. Thank goodness my friend proposed to get the personal loans at creditors. Thence, I acted so and used to be happy with my short term loan.

Don't you understand that it is the best time to get the home loans, which will make your dreams come true.

According to my analysis, thousands of persons on our planet get the business loans at various banks. Thus, there is good possibilities to find a college loan in every country.
